Description

Cedrus libani, the cedar of Lebanon or Lebanese cedar, is a species of tree in the pine family Pinaceae, native to the mountains of the Eastern Mediterranean basin. It is a large evergreen conifer that has great religious and historical significance in the cultures of the Middle East, and is referenced many times in the literature of ancient civilizations. It is the national emblem of Lebanon and is widely used as an ornamental tree in parks and gardens.

These plants are sometimes used for bonsai, though they can be grown as a regular full-sized tree. If growing as a Bonsai, we are offering our Bonsai growing instruction booklet as an option with your seeds. It contains full-colour images and detailed information about germinating, growing, pruning and potting your new bonsai! It is the same booklet that is offered in our bonsai kit.

Hardiness zones: 5-9

Location: Sun or part sun

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Soak in water, let stand in water for 24 hours. Obtain a sterile seed-start mix, and place 1-2 seeds in each pot, and lightly cover it with soil. Water thoroughly. No cold treatment is required. Place the pots in a warm, sunny spot. You should see the first sign of germination within the next few days or weeks, depending on the variety. Generally a 10-60 day range is normal for the first signs of growth. When the seedlings are about 5cm (2") tall, remove any additional plants and leave only the strongest seedling in each pot. The removed seedlings can be planted in a garden or elsewhere if desired.
