This compact German selection offers the same striking, powder-blue foliage color as the popular Blue Atlas Cedar (Cedrus atlantica ‘Glauca’). Cedrus atlantica ‘Horstmann’ is a slow-growing, intermediate-size tree which maintains a smaller stature. Horstmann Atlas Cedar grows about 6-8″ a year and makes an attractive, small tree with considerable presence for the smaller garden. Ascending branches covered with tight clusters of bright needles give Cedrus atlantica ‘Horstmann’ an elegant look that is at once full and open.
