Canadian Hemlock is an evergreen that’s great for planting in shady places, but it does need protection from the wind. It likes the east side of a building and plenty of moisture, prefers acidic soil. A graceful tree with loose, open growth, slender and drooping branches. Hemlock can be sheared. Very fussy when transplanting. Be sure to maintain good moisture by mulching plants and water during periods of drought. This tree grows to be around 30-40′ tall x 25-35′ wide.
