{Our Cedrus Deodara or Cedar Rose Tree...}

Last year on March 26, I fell in love with a post by Rosabella la vie en rose, 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.

  4. Goedemorgen Mariette..
    Ha ha, je boompje grappig, het leek eerst heel wat, maar hij moet nog flink groeien..

    Wat het 'vaste' vergeet-me-nietje betreft, het is een Brunnera, dus geen Myosotis, en het wordt hier het 'vaste' vergeet-me-nietje genoemd omdat het geen eenjarige is,maar een vaste plant.

  5. Liebe Mariette,

    einen guten Tag und einen sonnigen


  6. Beautiful tree,love the setting with the pond xx

  10. I hope your little tree will grow and grow and grow. I want hollyhocks now. Wow are they ever gorgeous. And I noticed they had huge seed pods on them. Maybe I could go swipe some. :) Thanks to your kitties for Jingles' birthday wishes. Hugs to you all, Tammy

  11. Liebe Mariette,
    da wirst du auf deine Zapfen-Rosen aber noch warten müssen. Ob das Bäumchen schon weiß, wie gut das Schicksal mit ihm war, dass es in deinem Garten aufwachsen darf?
    Liebe Grüße, Johanna

  12. Dearest Mariette,
    I think about very happy with your Pieter was looking after your lovely home.
    I love your gardens that make me more looking for all the time.
    but I know that it is not easy to look after your tree....
    I looking for your garden all the time.

  13. Dear Mariette,

    Beautiful tree and hope yours will soon have the Cedar roses - I have not heard of this tree before.
    Agree with you, so important to have good soil to make plants grow well.
    Our soil is very heavy with clay so I am always buying bags of potting mix and compost for my plants.

    Have a happy day

  14. Lovely photos! And nice tree. You have such a nice and spacious garden. Have a lovely Day my friend.
    Big hugs

  15. Mariette,

    Very pretty evergreen. Pine-cone roses are beautiful.


  16. Now that is so incredible!! It's wonderful all the lovely things that blogland friends introduce us to ... I'm going to look in our area ~ to see if any local nurseries carry it.

    Thank you for introducing this beautiful tree!! Happy Wednesday dear friend, xo C. (HHL)

  17. was soll ich nun dazu sagen? meine liebe Mariette, durch meinen Bericht im letzten Jahr über die Zapfen der Zeder hast Du Dich entschieden, eine ebensolche in Deinen Garten zu pflanzen? was für eine wunderbare Geschichte!!! oh, ich hoffe so sehr, dass sie sehr, sehr schnell wächst, und es nicht so lange dauert, bis sie Euch "Früchte" trägt ... und Du Deine eigenen "Zapen-Rosen" ernten kannst!!!! herzlichst, Deine Rosabella ♥

  18. Hi Mariette,
    ik kan wel in je blog hoor, ik volg via google friends connect.
    Ik ken deze boom niet, maar wat een mooie 'cones' komen hier van af.
    Hopelijk groeit die van jullie goed, succes ermee.

  19. Een prachtige boom Mariette. Ik heb jaren geleden eens in Nederland van die roosjes zo gekocht en ze goud geschilderd voor Kerst.Maar om ze zelf in je eigen tuin te hebben is nog mooier.

    Groeten Janny

  20. I'm sure your tree will become faboulous!!! Love it and take care of it!!!
    Good luck and happy Thursday!

  21. That little tree is going to be very happy in your beautiful garden I think Mariette! I would love to be sitting on that bench on the other side of the pond right now instead of getting ready for work. Or, at least I should be getting ready to work instead of sitting at the computer. ;)

    Have a happy day!
    xo Catherine

  22. The green of the trees and plants makes a nice complement as this pine near the pond, surely adorn your garden. greetings, Rose M
