'Emerald Spreader'

Cedrus deodara 'Viridis Prostrata'
Cedrus deodara 'Wells Prostrate'
Cedrus deodara 'Emerald Creeper'

A strong growing clone with rich green needles. It is naturally inclined to grow as a decumbent or prostrate shrub but will become mound-forming if staked. Both Hatch and Auders & Spicer speculate that this could merely be a cultivariant of ‘Emerald Falls’ and, if so, possibly not deserving of distinction. It was introduced by H.W. Wells, Washington, in 1975. (Auders & Spicer 2012; Hatch 2018–2020).
