Cedrus Deodara Pendula or Weeping Himalayan Cedar is a beautiful evergreen conifer with gently weeping pendulous branches. It’s doesn’t get too big so it suits medium-sized gardens and brings low maintenance year-round structure.
Cedrus Deodara Pendula is better known as Weeping Himalayan Cedar. Cedrus are native to mountainous areas of the Himalayas and like well-drained soil as a result. Weeping Himalayan Cedar has been grown in the UK since the 1800s and does best in southern areas. It’s sensitive to harsh frost and is not quite as hardy as its cousin Cedrus Libani. It’s the broad weeping branches that give Weeping Himalayan Cedar its common name. It often spreads wider than it is tall and its branches touch the ground unless they’re trained upward. Its needles are dark bluey-green growing in groups of up to 30 in a bundle. Upright cones may appear in autumn.
Height And Spread of Cedrus Deodara Pendula This is a fairly low-growing conifer that’ll reach a maximum height and spread of 3 metres over ten years.
How Hardy Is Cedrus Deodara Pendula Weeping Himalayan Cedar is hardy if its roots are well-drained and it’s grown in a sheltered spot. It is sensitive to harsh frost so needs a position in full sun that’s sheltered from frost pockets and harsh winds.
How To Use Cedrus Deodara Pendula This is an unusual standalone tree for a large lawn where its weeping branches and blue-green needles bring plenty of year-round colour and interesting shapes. Wildlife loves its thick sheltering branches, especially birds that nest there and shelter from the weather. You can grow a line of Weeping Himalayan Cedars to create a thick boundary that blocks out neighbours and use them to protect a large area of exposed soil. It’s an attractive landscaping tree in sheltered conditions.
How To Care For Cedrus Deodara Pendula Like most conifers Weeping Himalayan Cedar loves full sun. Choose a sunny spot in well drained soil with shelter from wind and frost for its best form and colour. This conifer does not like chalky soil and will struggle to grow in alkaline conditions. When young, a thick layer of acidic mulch such as bracken or pine mulch will help boost its nutrients and cut down weed competition. Unless you stake the branches when they’re young they’ll touch the ground, but it’s not necessary and depends on your preference. Remove broken or crossed branches in winter and water well until established.
