Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar Growing and Maintenance Tips

Central leaders can be supported to a predetermined height and then allowed to cascade. This cultivar does need room to spread. A smaller size can be easily managed, but the maintenance must be started at a young age. Damage/stem breakage may occur in winter from ice and snow accumulation. Protection (burlap wrap) from drying winter winds is recommended for young plants in an exposed location.
