I am searching for a few Lebanese cedars that have blue needles and are not gigantic. Can you give me a few varieties that may reach 20ish feet in height and have a drooping graceful habit? Thank you so much!

Cedrus libani typically have light green needles, changing to dark gray-green with maturity. All have the potential to reach 80' in height, but 'Pendula' is the slowest growing, and it has the weeping form you desire. 'Pendula Sargentii' grows even more slowly and is often used in rock gardens as a specimen plant. Hope this information helps you choose just the right cedar for your landscape!
