'Argentea'

Common Names
Silver Deodar Cedar

Synonyms
Cedrus deodara 'Silver' (?)

A fast-growing selection with particularly long silver-grey-green needles, first described in 1866 from a tree cultivated in France. A very similar clone, often sold as ‘Silver’ in North America, may be no more than a renaming of ‘Argentea’ but this cannot be proven. (Auders & Spicer 2012; Hatch 2018-2020).
