Atlas CedarCedrus atlantica
A distinctive evergreen with silvery blue to bluish-green needles. Pyramidal in its youth, it becomes massive with horizontal, spreading branches and is quite a sight. The Atlas Cedar lives long and requires a lot of space to develop freely. 2"-3' male cones form on lower part of tree, with larger purple female cones developing on top branches. Tolerates many soil conditions, but prefers moist and well-drained soils. Grows 40'-60' high with a 30'-40' spread.
