Tsuga canadensis 'Jeddeloh' / Jeddeloh's Canadian hemlock

Tsuga canadensis 'Jeddeloh,' according to the Iseli Nursery catalog is a dwarf, spreading mound of short light green foliage with gray-white bands of stomata on the underside. The center of the plant forms a unique, depressed funnel-shape, often referred to as "bird's nest". After 10 years of growth a plant will be considered mature at a height of 20 inches (50 cm) tall and 32 inches (80 cm) wide, a growth rate of 1.5 to 2 inches (3.5 - 5 cm) per year.

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in the early 1950s by zu Jeddeloh Nursery, Edewecht, Germany.
