very nice. May I add these to the ConiferBase? In order to do so, I would like to know where these plants are and who took the pictures.

How incredibly gorgeous. I cannot grow hemlock and generally I can accept that, but then I see photos like this one and I just drool…

That’s a nice white for what appears to be full sun. No tip burning issues with this one?

You are welcome to use the photos in the ConiferBase. The plants are part of my conifer garden in Newbury NH, about half way up the state. John Lyons took the photos, that’s me.
They do fine in full sun, the soil is well drained and moist most of the year.
There is no tip burning. Over the winter white tips gradually turn partly tan. When snow goes I shear the old growth off leaving a green hemlock. New growth in June is creamy white. An easy keeper and dramatic addition.
