I am wondering if there is a true Cedrus libani 'Pendula' or is there a mix-up and only Cedrus atlantica Glauca pendula exists and they are sometimes selled as weeping libanon cedar?
If Edwin says so...

There is a cultivar named Cedrus libani 'Sargentii' as well which could be either the same plant or something very similar to Cedrus libani 'Pendula'.
The common thing is various weeping Himalayan cedars being sold as weeping Cedar-of-Lebanon. 'Glauca Pendula' Atlas cedar is too distinctive to be a part of this.
The one at my pic is a true Cedrus libani 'Pendula' which is totaly differend from the Cedrus libani 'Sargentii'.
Cedrus deodara 'Pendula' does have longer needles then the Cedrus libani 'Pendula'...
Another thing is that the true name for the Cedrus libani 'Pendula' is Cedrus libani var. atlantica 'Pendula' while the Cedrus libani 'Sargentii' is a true Cedrus libani cultivar...
By far these have nothing to do with eachother.
Here is one labeled: Cedrus Libani 'Pendula' Weeping Cedar of Lebanon, at Denver Botanic Garden
Look at the link.
There is a Cedrus atlantica 'Glauca Pendula' and a Cedrus libani 'Glauca Pendula'.

Benjamin, we discussed this before.
The last pic isn't a Cedrus libani 'Glauca Pendula' but a Cedrus deodara 'Glauca Pendula'.
May be this was before you became a member of this forum.
Btw where in Germany do you live?
Yes, the last two forms shown on the Lone Elder table linked to above are examples of Himalayan cedar clones much sold erroneously as weeping forms of Cedar-of-Lebanon.
Hy coniferjoy, i lived in Stuttgart but now i am studying in Lower Saxony (Arboriculture). Don't know if i go back to Stuttgart afterwards...I'll see
Thanks for bringing light in the cedar confusion. They should change to correct names.
Can you tell me cultivars that truly origin from Cedrus libani?
Yep Benjamin, here are some:
'Comte de Dijon'
Are you still at school and learning to become a nurseryman or a gardner?
no i am not at school i am studying at university to become an Arborist (Look for Arboriculture in the internet). Collecting special conifers and the study of trees are one of my big hobbys.
I checked the Arboriculture on the internet.
What I reed there is nothing new to me, I'm doing this all day long but then only in the conifer field ;0)
Which special conifers did you collect in the meanwhile?

Most of them are still potted. I also have some 'hard-to-find' deciduous trees, like Ulmus glabra 'Nana' and Fraxinus excelsior 'Abiona'. At least they are hard to find where i come from.
Nice list of conifers and all written in the good way!
The only additional is to put a "x" mark at the Pinus schwerinii (x) 'Wiethorst', because it's a cross...
Thats right, thanks.
I've seen you live in the Netherlands. Did you visit esveld. Sure you know the nursery.
I also found this link. Is this from you? Is it where you live or work? Looks great!

Stock of 'Beacon Hill' seen here is clearly the same clone or at least type as the Beacon Hill planting of Cedrus deodara 'Repandens'.
