Tsuga canadensis 'Sargentii'
Size: 24-30 inch
USDA Zone: 4-8
Exposure: filtered to full sun
Growing Conditions: moist, well-drained soil
Comments: One of the very first dwarf conifers ever selected. Dates back to 1867. Ours, in the garden, is a 65-year-old specimen with a 12-foot head. We rescued it, with its 6000 lb. root ball, from a new housing development and planted it in the garden in 2002. The plants we now have available are from this magnificent specimen.
