Cedrus libani 'Sargentii'

memrysOctober 6, 2012

Just got one from Western Evergreen, and it is staked. Is this so it will then be more of a weeping than sprawling tree?

Most all of the info and photos I have seen of this cultivar state that it is prostrate, and will sprawl down an incline or even over a wall.

Is either form preferable, or a choice based upon where it can be planted?

Cedrus libani 'Sargentii' is a true Cedrus libani cultivar.

It's natural inclination is to be a ground cover.

However it will grow up on the stake only till you decide to let it free range. Then it will cascade down.

You have either choice. A focal point weeper staked to 6-8 feet or one that will cascade over a wall if given the time if left to its own devices.
