Cedrus Atlantica or Atlas Cedar
A tall, statuesque evergreen conifer, Cedrus Atlantica has a loose and open pyramidal crown giving it an elegant and impressive appearance. The branches sweep upwards from an erect central leader, with greyish-green needle-like leaves in clusters. The leaves are around 3.5 centimetres in size and keep their colour throughout the seasons. Atlas Cedar produces barrel-shaped, erect cones that turn to purple-brown as they mature. Native to Algeria and the Atlas Mountains of Morocco (as its common name suggests), this large conifer does well at high altitudes.
