Picture of Cedrus deodara Pendula.  Click here for a larger image.
This is the immature cone of the weeping deodar cedar, Cedrus deodara 'Pendula'.

Deodar cedar, or just "deodar" (the name used in its native India), is a large stately conifer with horizontal spreading branches, a conical shape and long, dark blue-green needles. 'Pendula' (a.k.a. 'Prostrata') has long, weeping branches and rarely grows no higher than 10 ft. Deodar is one of the most popular landscaping cedars in America. Once established, deodar is drought tolerant and is hardy USDA Hardiness Zones 7-9. You can find this graceful evergreen conifer in the Gotelli Collection of Dwarf and Slow Growing Conifers.
