Last year on March 26, I fell in love with a post by Rosabella la vie en rose ←(click it), about pine cones in the shape of a ROSE! After some research about this Himlayan Cedar I did find its botanical name: Cedrus Deodara. When their cones are mature, they disintegrate and the tops of the cones get pushed off and they resemble a rose. Look at images of: cedrus deodara rose cones ←(click it.
Pieter and I were over joyed when on Sunday, March 11 we found this very tree at the County Farm Plant Co, Inc. in Baxley, GA ←(click it). Our best friend took us along and we hauled this tree back home with us. Those of you, lucky enough to live near our area, can get it there as well. They have excellent plants, shrubs and trees. Let's show you our new Cedrus Deodara...
It stands behind our pond, as it can become a HUGE tree with quite a diameter.
Here it is! My husband Pieter dug out a deep hole and filled it with potting soil and good top soil that he got at Home Depot. That is the best investment one can give any plant, shrub or tree. Our local soil is not very rich and has poor water holding capacity.
Looking forward to the time that we will grow our first Cedar Roses...
Does any of you have Cedar Roses in the garden? Please tell me all about them.
Sandrina- Nicht perfekt, aber "unique" | look how pretty those rose cones can be!
