'Devinely Blue'

Cedrus deodara 'Divinely Blue'

A dwarf selection of dense growth and apparently irregular shape, conical according to Auders & Spicer, but spreading wider than tall according to Hatch. The foliage is blue-grey. Several catalogues ‘correct’ the spelling to ‘Divinely Blue’, but Hatch points out this is a mistake, as the name is a play on the name of the horticulturist who selected it, Bill Devine (not Divine, as in Auders & Spicer) of Maryland. It was introduced to the trade in 1998. (Auders & Spicer 2012; Hatch 2018–2020).
