Cedrus atlantica “Argentea”
A cultivar of Cedrus atlantica with silvery-white leaves. It needs to be confirmed because branches are drooping but leaves are smaller. Could well also be C. deodara “glauca”.
Photographed from Sunnyvale-California.
Beautiful Pics again

Ornamental tree in a home garden.
Seen in Sacramento on 6th Oct,14.
Height was around 4-5 feet.
cant decide between the common larch versus japanese larch
jap larch is good bonsai tree ….. habit is good for graceful bonsai…
if i had to bet it would be leaning towards japanese large cultivar … which i dont know… would be many
cant go any further here
Could this be Cedrus atlantica ‘glauca pendula’ by any chance?
Just a guess.
