Beautiful specimen from the Great Northwest
by SJJH, March 2, 2017

I waited years on Monrovia's website to order and receive (Atlanta, GA - Zone 7) these two beautiful Cedar's. Both plants were 48" tall (Above top of pot) and assumed, based upon the slow growth to be at least 5+ years.
old. I have two others (8'-0" tall) in my urban yard, these were added to compliment the existing. Thank you Monrovia!!!
