Tsuga canadensis 'Bacon Cristate'

Bacon Cristate Canadian Hemlock

Very unusual needles and shoots define this extremely dwarf, cristate hemlock that was found in the wild in northern New Jersey about 1925 by Ralph Bacon. Similar to, but smaller and darker than ‘Jervis’, Tsuga canadensis ‘Bacon Cristate’ produces both ultra-dense, bright green foliage and short, dark green, twisted needles with white striations on the reverse. The gnarly, irregular plant prefers part shade, moist, well-drained soil and protection from drying winds.
