Planting instructions

You should plant your Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar in a location that receives six hours of direct sunlight a day or more. Since this plant is on the smaller side, you can grow it in a container or directly in the ground. If you choose to use a container, select one that is considerably wider than the plant’s root ball and has great drainage. If you plant your Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar in the ground, begin by digging a hole that is as deep as the root ball is tall and about twice as wide.

Watering and nutrients

The water and fertilization needs of the Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar are minimal. Once this plant has established itself in a new growing location, it won’t need water except during prolonged heatwaves and droughts. You can feed your Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar with a balanced fertilizer, such as a 10-10-10. However, you do not need to feed this plant every year. Instead, the Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar will do just fine when it receives fertilizer once every other year.

Pollination

The Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar is a self-fertile plant, which means that it carries both male and female reproductive structures on a single plant. This presence of both male and female structures makes it possible for the Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar to pollinate itself. The pollination process begins when the male cones of this plant open to release their pollen. The pollen then travels through the air via wind currents to the female cones. After the pollen reaches the female cones, the female cones begin to develop a seed.

Pruning

In most cases, the Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar will need very little pruning throughout its life. The main reason for this is that this plant develops an attractive weeping form without the need for specific shaping. As is always the case, it is wise to prune out any branches that are dead, damaged or diseased. At times, you may also need to thin the foliage of this plant so that it does not appear too overgrown. However, the Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar does not have a rapid growth rate, so this issue rarely arises.

Pests, diseases, and animals

The Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar is an incredibly convenient and easy-to-care-for plant that needs very little water, fertilizer and pruning. Along with those advantages, this plant also has fantastic pest resistance. The reason for this excellent pest resistance is that the Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar secretes a specific type of oil that gives off a distinct scent. That scent is incredibly effective for deterring insects from infesting your plant. This plant often has great disease resistance too.

Achieving maximum results

The Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar is a low-growing plant that can act as the perfect ground cover in nearly any garden planting scheme. However, there are several other looks that you can pull off with this plant. For instance, the texture of the Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar is the perfect addition to most rock gardens and stone retaining walls. It is also possible to develop your Feelin’ Blue® Deodar Cedar into a small tree-like form by staking it at a young age.

FAQs

What does the name “Feelin' Blue® Deodar Cedar” mean?
