Great Plant Picks - Pendulous branches bear richly elegant foliage of glossy green needles with bright white undersides and a notch at the tip. Tsuga diversifolia has a conical habit and is often multi-trunked. Older branches develop orange-brown bark. It isn't troubled by the insect pests that plague many of the commonly cultivated eastern hemlocks (Tsuga canadensis) and is the first hemlock to produce new growth in spring. Tsuga diversifolia prefers moist, well-drained soil. It resents hot, full-sun sites and should be grown in shaded to partially shaded conditions. It is resistant to hemlock woolly adelgid and is relatively carefree.
