In a Nutshell:
* This is the most popular landscape cedar, mostly because of it's fast growth and branch density in youth. It grows beautifully in the south and west coast in the U.S. Mature specimens have a graceful, horizontal, weeping habit with pendulous branches; it doesn't mind drought and sun and is a fine specimen plant.
* Deodar is in great demand as building material because of its durability, rot-resistant character and fine, close grain, which is capable of taking a high polish. Its historical use to construct religious temples and in landscaping around temples is well recorded. more...
* Thrives on most soils, being very tolerant of dry sites and of drought when it is established. Succeeds in very chalky soils. more...
