A rare and aristocratic plant, this extremely dense, mounding hemlock has one of the slowest growth rates of all the cultivars. Small, densely arranged needles and crowded branches form a very small, tight, bun-like conifer that needs a showy spot in trough, rock garden or raised bed. Tsuga 'Minuta' was discovered in a group of seedlings in Vermont.
Variegated Canadian Hemlock has bright white new spring growth giving this evergreen the appearance of frost on a moonlit night. Older foliage within the plant retains light tones for an overall glowing look. During winter, the white is often blushed pink. Tsuga 'Moon Frost' is dwarf, globose, and compact as a young plant; it will broaden, and increase its growth rate with age, but will still keep its dwarf habit.

Shrubs

Shrubs fill the intermediate niche in the garden. Larger than than perennials, they have a woody structure that gives them a year-round presence. Shrubs offer a variety of beautiful traits to choose from: flowers, fragrance, fall color, fruit, and attractive foliage. There is a shrub to fit every garden, even patio gardens with containers as planting beds can include a dwarf selection or two. Shrubs can be planted on their own to enjoy as a specimen, as wonderful anchors for perennial beds, natural supports for Clematis, or to create a lovely screen when privacy is appreciated. We offer a fine selection of colorful shrub choices to enhance your garden.
