Deodar cedar is among the world’s most elegant and stately of evergreen conifers. This western Himalayan native tree has fast growth and develops a broad, pyramidal habit. Its dense branches are covered in green to blue-green needles. The branch tips often dangle softly downward, giving the entire tree a soft and luxurious feel. With time, the trunks and branches become very picturesque, especially when viewed from under the canopy. The female cones are held upright on the upper tree branches and are large, egg-shaped and purple-green, while the smaller male cones are elongate and shed copious amounts of yellow pollen in spring.
This large tree and must have full sun and ample room to attain its fullest and most beautiful growth. Deodar cedar is extremely adaptable, growing well on a wide range of soil pH and types although it will not tolerate soggy soils.
Well-suited as specimen trees for the landscape. (source: learn2grow.com)

1. Soak for 2-3 hours then stratify mixed with moist vermiculite/sand in air tight zip lock bags. Keep for 3 weeks in a fridge at +2-+4C.
2. After the stratification - sow seeds on the surface of a Well drained seed sowing mix at about 17°C.
3. Lightly cover the seeded area with mulch to reduce soil compaction in sun and rain. Water shallow seed lightly and frequently until they sprout. Cedrus seeds will usually germinate in 14-60 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic. Normally will only germinate with light, GA-3 may promote germination - even in the dark.
4. Water deeper seeds slowly and deeply, but do not keep wet or they can rot. When seeds sprout, encourage deep roots by gradually reducing watering frequency and increasing the amount, to get it down deep around and below roots while letting soil surface dry between soakings
NOTE: Most seeds require warm (room temperature or higher) temperatures to germinate. When seedlings emerge, thin extras to allow full light around seedlings; some may be transplanted to larger pots or the garden. When transplanting, hold small plants by leaves to avoid damage to tender stems.
