Tsuga canadensis 'Pendula' / weeping Canadian Hemlock

Tsuga candensis 'Pendula' is a very graceful, weeping form of Canadian hemlock with good green coloration in the foliage. Well-grown specimens do not create a leader, but will spread out horizontally. Many derivations of this form are available in the nursery trade and no one specific form can be clearly identified from any population. See listing under Tsuga canadensis 'Sargentii' which should be correctly listed as Tsuga canadensis f. pendula.
