Cedars are beautiful, architectural trees that attract us with their irregular, monumental crowns, mainly in southern Europe under the Alps. There are 4 species in this genus among which the hardiest are Atlas cedar (blue-green), cedar of Lebanon (green), and some varieties of Himalayan cedar.

Himalayan cedar is the most graceful of all cedars. Bushes Electra is a slower growing variety bred by Richard Bush in Canby, USA, at the turn of the century. It bears showy, 2-3 cm long, needles of silvery blue colour on insolated parts of the plant, and blue-green color inside the bush. The side branches run nearly parallel to the trunk while the laterals are more horizontal. Overall shape is nicely conical, quite symmetrical.

Bushes Electra grows more slowly that the species reaching approximately 6m in or climate. It grows best in full sun and almost any reasonably permeable soil. Lime tolerant. Pruning is possible in early spring. It is also hardier than the species and US growers rate it hardy to USDA zone 5b i.e. -27°C.
