Tsuga canadensis (common name Canaidan Hemlock) is native to our area. It is a graceful and highly ornamental conifer. Sadly, it is way under used here. I have a few species plants around but they are in miserable shapes. Surprisingly, there is a huge hemlock tree growing wild in the woods next door to my property.
Tsuga canadensis ‘Gentsch White Tip’
I am patiently waiting for this plant that I acquired as a one gal stock a few years ago. The white tips appears to be burnt every winter.
Tsuga canadensis ‘Hussi’
This hemlock has irregular branches and yet form a natural good looking structure ideal for garden composition.
Tsuga canadensis ‘Jacqueline Verkade’
For garden use, Tsuga canadensis ‘Jacqueline Verkade’ would be more graceful than Taxus c. ‘Nana’ and remain smaller, and brighter green.
Tsuga canadensis ‘Jankins #210’
This is a lovely white variegated Tsuga. The white variegation does not appear to be reliable. It appears to be a slow grower.
Tsuga canadensis ‘New Gold’
This Tsuga has beautiful greenish gold new shoots in spring. It will eventually be a big tall tree.
Tsuga canadensis ‘Pendula’
I have two left kicking around in the garden; need to make an effort torescue them.
Tsuga canadensis ‘Summer Snow’
This appears to be a very reliable variegated Tsuga. It appears to suffer less winter burn than the others in my garden.
Tsuga canadensis ?
I lost the variety name over the years. It is more than 10 years old, and is about 0.5 m.
