Cedrus deodara
Deodar cedar

Culture: This species transplants easily when root pruned or container grown. It should be protected from sweeping winds, and needs well-drained soil and full sun. It can be propagated from seed and cuttings. Dirr reports a more limited landscape life span in the U.S. for this species as compared to the other cedars.

Usage: Deodar cedar makes an excellent specimen plant that is well suited to large locations. Numerous variegated and dwarf forms exist for special uses.
