This miniature garden tree, the Moonfrost Canada Hemlock, is a favorite mini garden tree for shade or part sun. It can do well in full sun as long as the ground remains evenly damp and cool - in zones 4 through 8. It often mimics a small tree with its small trunk underneath the airy foliage.
This variety is fun - it changes color throughout the year:
Late winter/early spring, the whitish-green needles will get a pink blush on them.
Springtime, the new growth is a creamy white at the tips of the branches (A treat for the eye at the end of a long winter.)
Summer, it turns back to a light gray-green celery color.
Winter, shear it back before the new growth begins so you can appreciate the creamy tips in the springtime.
