Another lovely one its gorgeous, lol just divided blogs on trees around us no matter where makes the garden of England with out them would look barren.

Beautiful - I have the 'smaller' variety - I would love to have this one but unfortunately haven't got the space!

21 Nov, 2009

 

Oooh thats beautiful Dawn.......

There are three types of cedar - Atlantic, Deodar and Lebanon. A tree expert told me how to distiguish between them - look at the ends of the branches:

Atlantic are Ascending
Deodar are Descending
Lebanon are Level

Simples

Thanks everyone and thanks for the info Andrew. I have the atlantica Glauca too, its only about 6 inches high though - we had a big tree that had to be felled as it was in the wrong place, but grew a few from the seeds I collected.

Wow its stunning.

One of my favourites Dawn....such a beauty, I only wish I had room in my small garden....:o(

Janey, I have a smaller version in my garden. Bluespruce would know what it was called.

23 Nov, 2009

 

I love them too Janey - pity the top of the photo somehow got chopped off.
How tall do you expect the smaller variety to grow to Skillen.

23 Nov, 2009

 

It is called C.Deodara 'Aurea'. It needs a sheltered site and has light green foliage, mine is 10 years old (about 2ft when I got it) and will grow to 12ft. I have a pic in my photos. It's quite like the one in your pics Dawnsaunt.

Sounds lovely Skillen, a nice alternative. I'll try and find your picture, thank you.

Lovely to see this again, had this in our old garden, no space here sadly.

Skillen (above) says there is a smaller variety :-)

A lovely, elegant tree.

Thanks Claire

Cedrus deodara 'Aurea' might be a bit slower growing than the species, but will probably grow to 12 feet in about 10 years or less. There are far more superior cultivars available if something much slower is required.

no room no room she cried.......

Just caught up with this Dawn.....the smaller tree sounds beautiful too......am off to look at your pics Skillen....:o)

28 Nov, 2009

 

Have you decided on a tree yet Janey?

28 Nov, 2009

 

I really like the Cedrus deodora Aurea Dawn, the only thing is that it is slow growing so I would have to wait a few years for it to do its job. Another one which I love is Gordonia yunnanence the Silk Screen Tree.......this one is native to Australia and I'm waiting on some feedback on whether it would survive our climate. It's similar to a large Camelia with evergreen glossy leaves and large white blossoms. Meanwhile I may invest in some arch topped trellis which will cover the eyesore and be great for beans next year.....:o)

Hi Janey, it sounds lovely, I tried to google it but didnt get very far.
Trellis with a nice climber can hide a multitude, cant it. Good luck Janey x

29 Nov, 2009

 

Still no luck with the Silk screen tree Dawn.....but after a fruitless search at the garden centre, we've decided to save our money and move a young cherry tree which isn't doing too well by the wall into the middle area, it has very early small blossoms and I think will appreciate a new home, not evergreen, but flowers Feb.....:o)

29 Nov, 2009

 

Janey, I found that the 'Aurea' grew quite quickly in the first few years.

29 Nov, 2009

 

Well it really is a picture Skillen, now I'm in two minds again....Lol! Nope I've decided the cherry tree deserves a better location, if it doesn't work than your Aurea is a must!....:o)

Just like mine. I had a bit of difficulty identifying it at first. But this forum soon got me the answer. Mine looks a bit big for my garden but the wife says its stopping. So Ill have to manage. Although we clipped its lower branches last year and this year we will trim some of the lower ones. There is a dead branch at bout 5metres up that need to come off, before it falls.

Janey: I'm sure the cherry will appreciate the move to its new space.
Littleoldman: We took the lower branches off ours too, they can be quite prickly when mowing.

Thanks Dawn....:o)
