Discuss Cedrus deodara 'Aurea' (Golden deodar) with other Shoot members.
My cedrus deodara aurea has been in our garden for 3 years now only this season it hasn't started to grow any taller. Its growing outwards like it should do but the lead branch hasn't grown at all. Any thoughts as to way this is? If the lead bud is damaged will another branch take the lead?
