Cedrus atlantica Fastigiata. Say that to your friends and they'll be impressed. Those in the know will look at you and say, "Oh, you mean Blue Atlas Cedar." That just sounds so proletariat for a plant that carries a sense of being regal. But it sure is a whole lot easier to spell.
Blue Atlas Cedar is always a classic container plant and is perfect for high profile spots. Red Bor Kale for the front sun-facing side of the container with Heuchera Obsidian along the shadier sides and back, with a little Carex Evergold to soften the sides.
