Cedrus deodara 'Eisregen'
‘Eisregen’ forms a narrow, upright tree of moderate growth, to 3 x 1.5 m in ten years (Auders & Spicer 2012). The branches are much divided toward their tips, and not so markedly pendulous as the type. The foliage is pale blue-grey, not nearly so blue as in the sister seedling ‘Karl Fuchs’. Like other members of the Paktia Group it is noted for its cold tolerance. ‘Eisregen’ was the only Cedrus to survive –26.6°C (–15.8°F) in Günther Horstmann’s collection in Germany during the winter of 1978–1979. Horstmann raised many, if not all, of the Paktia Group seedlings that were later named by Krüssmann, beginning with ‘Eisregen’ in 1979 (Krüssmann 1985).
