Golden Duchess™ Eastern Hemlock

Tsuga canadensis 'MonKinn'

Like a jewel in the landscape, this superb new dwarf conifer nearly glows with golden-yellow foliage on graceful, arching branches. Its low, mounding form and improved sun tolerance over other gold varieties makes it a perfect for woodland or rock garden. A stunning container specimen. Plant in mass for a truly dramatic effect. 

CareProvide slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained soil. Best with some afternoon shade. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Apply a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.

    Does anyone know if this new plant is susceptible to the wooly adelgid blight that is killing the eastern hemlocks?
