Cedrus atlantica Glauca, commonly known as Blue Atlas Cedar, is a majestic coniferous tree that is native to the Atlas Mountains of North Africa. It is widely grown as an ornamental tree in parks, gardens, and landscapes due to its striking blue-gray needles and impressive size.

The tree can reach heights of up to 120 feet (36 meters) with a spread of up to 40 feet (12 meters). The blue-gray needles are arranged in dense clusters and are up to 1 inch (2.5 cm) in length. The needles have a soft texture and emit a pleasant fragrance when crushed.

In addition to its striking appearance, Cedrus atlantica Glauca is also known for its hardiness and adaptability. It can tolerate a wide range of soil types and climatic conditions, including drought, heat, and cold.

The tree is often used as a specimen tree in large landscapes, where its size and beauty can be fully appreciated. It also makes an excellent windbreak or screen, as its dense foliage provides excellent shelter and privacy.

Overall, Cedrus atlantica Glauca is a beautiful and resilient tree that is sure to add elegance and character to any landscape.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
