Atlas Cedar (Cedrus Atlantica)

Atlas Cedar (Cedrus Atlantica)

Atlas Cedars grow in the form of wide pyramids that are filled with needle-shaped evergreen leaves, and are mostly found in North Africa. The Blue Atlas Cedar (Cedrus Atlantica 'Glauca'), which has stunning silvery-blue leaves, is the most commonly planted species. This type is not suitable for street planting. These cedars grow well in temperate climate, as they are not cold-hardy.

Besides these four kinds of True Cedars, there are some other coniferous trees which are termed as cedars but are not classified as True Cedars, although they bear significant resemblances with the former. These trees do not fall under the genus Cedrus.
