A fast-growing, feathery evergreen hedge - beautiful all year long! What a lovely dense hedge! It adds value to property - quick! Canadian Hemlock is so beautiful - it is often called the most graceful of all evergreens. The foliage is a soft blue-green color that grows in flat, feathery layers all the way to the ground. It can be sheared to any formal shape desired as easily as Privet. But whether it is sheared, or left unsheared, this hedge remains neat and attractive. Beautiful evergreen branches give a cooling effect on hot summer days and provide a fuel-saving windbreak for cold winter days.
Privacy and protection without waiting! Canadian Hemlock is one of the fastest growing of all the evergreen hedges. It also makes an excellent ornamental specimen to add graceful charm to your landscape. Plant 2-3' apart in good garden soil for an attractive hedge. While evergreen Canadian Hemlock will grow in shade, it prefers full sun or partial shade and plenty of moisture. It is winter hardy in all parts of the U.S. and easily adapts to a wide range of soils. We suggest you protect it from prevailing winds the first year planted. You can count on it to grow 1-3' annually and make one of the best of all evergreen hedges.
