Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar is a charismatic specimen tree that will become a work of art in your garden that only gets more stunning with each passing year. Picture powder blue evergreen needles in pompom clusters on branches that swerve and tumble to the ground, and you'll have some idea of its one-of-a-kind look. Left to its own devices, Weeping Blue Cedar takes on a picturesque free-form shape; trained to a wall or railing, the branches hang down in sheets of baby blue. This luxe specimen tree is a sophisticated accent for contemporary homes, and its classical elegance fits more traditional landscapes, too. Wherever it's planted, it will turn the garden into a gallery!

The Story

Blue Atlas Cedar hails from the Atlas Mountains of Algeria and Morocco.  It is believed that the first European country it traveled to was France, in 1839 (not surprising, since France had a presence in both Algeria and Morocco).  While in France, it morphed into this weeping form.  The Weeping Blue Atlas Mother Plant was planted in France by the Paillet Nurseries in 1873.  Apparently, it finds the climate of France to its liking, as it’s still thriving more than 140 years later.  It measures 85 feet wide and 26 feet tall.

The Details

Now this is a specimen tree if I ever saw one! An obvious weeping form of the more common Blue Atlas Cedar, the pendulous branches grow outward and down displaying an elegant weeping habit. And it's blue foliage is quite attractive as well. The mature height of this awesome speciment will vary depending on how the evergreen has been trained.

How to Grow

Famed Oregon Wholesale Nursery Iseli says of this plant:  It is “putty in the hands of a sculptor.”  Meaning, it can be trained to arc over pathways, hang from railings like a curtain, or climb high and tumble like a waterfall.  In shaping this plant, you must have a plan and stick to it.  The branches are only flexible when young, so the training must be deliberate and ongoing.  But the payoff?  Magical.  Its other cultural requirements are full sun, excellent drainage, and winter temps that don’t dip below -5°F.
