Western Hemlock – bundle of 5 bareroot plants

6.00

Tsuga heterophylla can grow very large over time. A mature tree can surpass 100’ in height, and 30’ in width. The trunk can swell to a 4’ diameter. 

The lacy appearing foliage consists of soft flattened needles which are bright green when new, turning lustrous dark green as they mature. The needles appear 2- ranked, and are ¼” to ¾” long with rounded tips. When examined from below there are white bands on the underside of the needles. 

Cones are elliptical, light brown and about an inch in length. 

The Western hemlock prefers acidic, cool, moist to wet soils with good drainage. While the best growth may be obtained in full sun, like other hemlocks, the Western hemlocks are quite tolerant of partial to full shade. 

Plant form: bareroot
