Plant Information

Cedrus deodara 'Snow Sprite' is a small, tight, irregularly mounding selection of Himalayan cedar. Each spring the plant puts on a dramatic show of ivory-white new growth which later turns creamy-yellow in summer. While a leader will develop with age, this conifer will remain relatively small and compact, especially when compared to the species. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 3 feet (1 m) tall and 2.5 feet (75 cm) wide an annual growth rate in most climates, of 3 to 4 inches (7.5–10 cm). 'Snow Sprite' looks and performs best when grown in part shade, differing from many white conifers in that the white is actually more intense when given a little more shade.
