The Deodar or Cedrus deodara,is a native of The Himalays and was first introduced to the UK in 1831, it seems well adapted to our conditions.
The true Cedars are a small group of conifers, in truth maybe only 2 species as some authorities maintain that the Atlantic, Blue and Cyrprian cedars may all be geographical varieties of The Cedar of Lebanon, Cedrus libani.
Our example is however almost certainly the Deodar which in the wild grows into a beautiful, large tree of pendant habit. None of the Cedars are particularly common as bonsai and this specie less than the more familiar Cedar of Lebanon.. This bonsai has a height of 75 cm. and branching that spreads to 50 cm. Across the base the trunk diam. is 5 cm. Although attractive as it is the branch structure could probably benefit from some refinement and more secondary branching and ramification could be developed. The pot is a hand-made unglazed rectangular ceramic 33x22x11 cm.
