WHAT: This deodar cedar called Feelin’ Blue has a weeping structure and gray-blue needles, which makes it a great choice for the residential landscape.

The compact growing habit of this cedar lends itself also to pots and small urban gardens.

SUN OR SHADE: A deodar cedar needs full sun.

SIZE: It is considered a dwarf and will grow to 2 feet tall and 6 feet wide.

SEE IT: At the WSU Snohomish County Master Gardener Demonstration Garden at McCollum Park, 600 128th St. SE, Everett.

CORRECTION

A sharp-eyed reader pointed out that the photo with the Jan. 31 Plants of Merit looked like cotoneaster and not wintergreen as the story said.

Writer Sandra Schumacher discovered that, indeed, a cotoneaster had grown over the wintergreen plant at the Evergreen Arboretum &Gardens Shade Garden.

Some varieties of cotoneaster have red berries as does the wintergreen in winter, adding to the confusion.
