Cedrus deodara 'Albospica'

Raulston Arboretum. Summer 2003 as 'Silver'.

Cedrus deodara 'Argentea' ('Silver'?)
lc: rich silvery-blue, less dark a blue than 'Bill's Blue' and some others.
ns:  the common name "Silver Deodar Cedar" is applied to this old clone. It is
ns: not clear if the plant sold merely as 'Silver' in the US is traceable to it or not.
ns: the plants seem to match but doubtless various silver seedling or mutations
ns: will occur as these are normal genetic ranges in most conifer species.

Raulston Arboretum. April 2003.

Cedrus deodara 'Aurea'
ha: pyramidal
lc: golden yellow becoming yellow-green by fall. It seems most appealing as young plants under 30 years or so.
lc: older trees are often less vigorous, giving fewer and paler yellow tips in spring and summer. It is best used in
lc: our opinion near blue and dark green examples of the genus where the contrasts will be sharp for many
lc: decades.

'Aurea Pendula' - click image
JC Raulston Arboretum. Fall 2003. It should have been called 'Aurea Horizontalis' for it only droops a bit. It is gold enough for a couple of
weeks each spring and is rather pale yellowish-green thereafter.  I like 'Golden Horizon' for a spreading drooping cultivar.
