Cedrus brevifolia
« on: July 14, 2014, 05:47 AM »
The STL group had a wonderful time at the Nashville show. We bought several trees which I'll share over time. Last night we got home in poor light so the pictures need to be re-shot. We really enjoyed the workshops and the vendors. This tree intrigues me the most just because of the unusual species. This is the short needle variety. The red grows in the mountains of Cyprus. I purchased it from Randy Davis out of KY. JRob

Admistrater -  I was not awake obviously. Can you correct the subject - should be Cedrus brevifolia. Thanks JRob

Cedrus brevifolia is a rare species with slow growth. It is distinguished from C. libani only by the habitual form, shorter needles .5 to 1.6 cm in length which are dark green and the cones which are held upright above the foliage. This tree was grafted onto libani stock approximately 14 years ago. The union now is unnoticable. The tree was repotted last year in the SR pot. I am glad to add it to my collection and will show it in at the Japanese festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden the end of August JRob

Needles look nice and tightly clustered, I have a lot of trouble training deodora because of the species being a lot looser in its needle clusters than the other species in the genus.

any plans for it yet?

kind regards
