Great Plant Picks - This dwarf conifer is a charmer! Tsuga canadensis 'Jervis' (pronounced "juv-vis") is upright and compact, growing slowly into a broad, pyramidal shape about three to five feet in ten years. Dense branching with dark green foliage and prominent growth buds add to the overall beauty of this superb small Canadian hemlock. It makes an excellent specimen in the rock garden or container." This cultivar is slow growing, compact, conical and upright in habit, eventually maturing into an asymmetrical pyramidal shape with lots of character. As with most dwarf and slow growing selections of hemlocks this one grows best in partial shade to full sun, although avoid exceptionally hot sites. Plant 'Jervis' in well-drained, slightly acidic soil and water regularly during the summer, especially if grown in a sunnier exposure. It is definitely intolerant of drought.
