Tsuga canadensis 'Betty Rose'

Tsuga canadensis 'Betty Rose'


Striking creamy white new foliage decorates this slow growing Canadian hemlock both in spring, then again in late summer. Branchlets are very pubescent near the tips, and the leaves are very irregularly arranged and forward pointing. After 10 years this dwarf conifer will reach 1.5 to 2.5 ft tall, and about as wide. 

The original plant was found in the wild in 1973 near Vanceboro, Maine by Francis J. Heckman of Ambler, Pennsylvania and named for his wife. At the time, despite being quite old, the plant was only 24 inches tall and 26 inches wide. Hardy to zone 4.
