Cedrus libani subsp. libani

I took this at a nursery that I went to visit last week and was amazed at both the size of these plants that he had available but also just the plant in general.  This used to be classified as a varietal of Cedrus libani called ‘Stenocoma’ but has been reclassified.  The young plants are a little bit thinner when they are younger as are  all Cedrus but you can see that it thickens up with age.  It has a great upright and narrow habit and a very slight glauca touch to the needles.  This would be a wonderful screening plant (which is what I intend to use it as) or a fantastic specimen.
