Sargent's weeping hemlock (Tsuga canadensis 'Pendula')
SOO-gah kan-ah-DEN-sis
Synonyms:  Tsuga canadensis f. pendula
Genus:  Tsuga
This hemlock cultivar makes a very beautiful specimen, slowly forming a 10- to 15-foot-tall and 30-foot-wide, multi-layered mound of greenery. Its horizontally speading branches are covered with smaller weeping branches clothed in short, dark green needles. It looks great growing over a rock wall, in a rock garden, or by water. Its size may be controlled by regular clipping.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Most hemlocks are native to forests of Southeastern Asia and North America. They can tolerate a considerable amount of shade, particularly when young.
Care:  Provide moist, but well-drained (acidic to slightly alkaline) soil in full sun to full shade. Hemlocks are notably at risk of infestation by woolly adelgids, scale, and mites.
Propagation:  Sow seed in a cold frame in spring.
Problems:  Botrytis (gray mold), rust, needle blights, butt rot, snow blight, weevils, mites, aphids, woolly adelgid, scale.
