Cedar of Lebanon (Cedrus libani) potted tree, quart-size, organic

$15.00$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!

      Hi Elizabeth,
      They are very nicely sized up at the moment, can be kept potted and should be potted to a gallon on receipt. Hurry, these are getting low in stock!

    Question

    Can a single Lebanese Cedar create cones on its own or does it need another one nearby for cross-pollination?

      These are self-fertile but as with most trees, when picking seeds for propagation purposes, it is best to collect from several trees of the same species and mix the accessions together.

      Hi, how did you originally source your tree? Being Lebanese I know it is almost impossible to get anything from a cedar tree besides blanks, out of Lebanon.

      Hi John,
      Probably so these days but the tree propagates easily from seeds and the original seeds came from Lebanon. Now we have large trees on our land and can collect our own seeds.
