We are taking a break from the heat.  We will resume shipping plants starting in September.  Feel free to pre-order plants for your fall garden.  First come, first served.

Cedar of Lebanon (Cedrus libani) potted tree, large, 9-inch-deep-pot, organic

$40.00

Family:  Pine (Pinaceae)

Hardy to Zones 5 to 9

Evergreen tree native to the Mediterranean and capable of reaching a height of 130 feet.  Mentioned 75 times in The Bible.  The strong and aromatic wood of this stately tree has been extensively used in construction, historically used for providing masts for the ships of the Phoenicians, framework for the pharonic tombs and King Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem.  The bark was used medicinally for treating leprosy, and the heartwood is distilled to make an expensive healing essential oil.  Tree prefers full sun to part shade and is highly adaptable, growing in various soils.  One large individual that we planted on our farm in the early days was nearly consumed by goats, but bounced back (we used comfrey poultices) and is now over 100 feet tall, with an impressive spread of branches.  This tree is good energy no matter where it grows or how it is used.  We are glad to offer it up!

  1. Question

    Joe

    I bought three of these (Cedar of Lebanon) and it looks like they made the trip ok. Are they some specific “variety” or subspecies, or that’s unknown?

      Hi Joe,
      Glad you got your trees! No, we try to sell just the open-pollinated wild forms of things, not varietals.

  2. Question

    Susan (verified owner)

    I just received my Cedrus libani and I’m wondering if I should plant it in a bigger pot for a while or just go ahead and plant it outside in it’s “final resting place”! I’m in south eastern Pennsylvania.

      Hi Susan,
      They’re outdoor hardy and ready to plant. Please unbind roots before planting and make sure it gets consistent water in the first year, so it will root in.

      Hi Vickie,
      In the realm of evergreen trees, Cedar of Lebanon is one of the fastest growing. The ones in the 9-inch-deep pots are already taking off for the year–they were the biggest ones from the potted population we had, I personally transplanted them, and they are bound to please.
