two coniferous stars of the small screen
and given Hollywood's insatiable demand for other people's creative properties, probably the big screen too, one day.
Couple thoughts: are they helped along in looking so eccentric? Or does it just happen? The handful of large cedars I've seen in the US have the more uniform appearance of the one to the right. And, cedars have been cultivated for so long in the UK, is it possible that some hybridization has occurred? The variation between these two (never mind the color, it's been enhanced) could be seen in the natural range of the Cedar of Lebanon, but I wonder if the one on the left might be a C. libani X C. deodara or C. libani X C. atlantica cross? There's something about the luxuriousness of the clumps of foliage that is odd looking. The classic English Country House Cedar is thinner and scragglier looking. Maybe this one has just had centuries of composted cow manure dumped at its roots.
