This hemlock is one of our members’ favorites for privacy screens and hedges because of its handsome, graceful appearance and ability to be sheared to any height or shape. The tree is also one of only few evergreens that can handle full sun and full shade, though it prefers a site where it can receive both shade and sun.

  • Provides great privacy screen and hedges
  • Tolerates both full sun and shade
  • Plant 2' apart for hedge
  • Will be delivered at a height of 6"– 1' for bare-root or potted
