Himalayan Cedar
Cedrus deodora

Natural range: Nepal to Afghanistan

Three of the world’s four cedar types (species) shade this garden (trees 16, 17 Click for sign's details, 18). All cedar (Cedrus) trees are from the eastern hemisphere/ The Himalayan has the brightest color and the longest needles of any cedar.

[The third face of the cube]
ארזים ואורנים שייכים לאותה משפחה. באורנים המחטים מאוגדות בקבוצות של 2-5 מחטים. כל אחת יותר ארוכה מהאצבע הארוכה שלך (לדוגמא עצים מס. 13 Click for sign's details ו- 14 Click for sign's details). בהשוואה, מה מבנה העלים בארזים?

[a question]
Cedars and pines belong to the same family. In pines, 2-5 needles bundle together, each longer than your longest finger (examples trees 13 Click for sign's details or 14 Click for sign's details). How do cedar needles compare?

[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
מחטיו של הארז (גם הארוכות בינהן) הרבה יותר קצרות מאשר המחטים של האורנים. בנוסף, הן מופיעות באגודות גדולות יותר. ספור אותן. כמה מחטים באגודה?

[The Answer to the question]
Even the relatively long needles of this cedar species are much shorter than those of pines. Also, there are many more cedar needles per bundle than in pines count them.
