Moon Frost Canada Hemlock - Tsuga canadensis 'Moon Frost'

Regular price $24.99

This miniature garden tree, the Moon Frost Canada Hemlock, is a favorite mini garden tree for shade or part sun. It ages really well and can be kept in a tree shape for years. Just be sure to shear it in late winter to keep the canopy in proportion to the trunk/garden AND it'll help keep it's color-changes throughout the seasons (see below.)

It can do well in full (cool) 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(s) underneath the airy foliage. 

This Hemlock 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.
