This irregularly mounding, compact conifer sends out ivory white new growth that turns creamy yellow. Cedrus deodar ‘Snow Sprite’ is a unique, mid-size plant that develops a leader with age, but stays small and compact compared to the species. It is best grown in part shade where the bright foliage will practically “glow in the dark”.

Many perennials and bonsai plants will have a ‘winter look’ that differs from how they look when actively growing. Colder temperatures and short days alter the appearance of these plants as they go thru seasonal changes. Some plants require this reboot to bloom and/or perform at their best during the growing season. Plants may remain semi-dormant until early spring. Rest assured that these cosmetic changes do not adversely affect the health of your plant.
