Sargentii Medium 2020 Canadien Hemlock Conifer Tsuga Canadensis



"Sargentii' is a somewhat old unregistered name referring to the official registered cultivar named Tsuga canadensis 'Pendula'. There remains a few very mature and very beautiful living Tsuga canadensis specimens bearing the name 'Sargentii' in the Northeast USA, which technically can only be referred to as "Variants" of the Species Tsuga canadensis. In conclusion, Sargentii is NOT a refistered Cultivar Name so if you fall in love with an iconic Photo of an ancient living Sargentii, buy a Tsuga canadensis 'Pendula'.


Note: Eternity Road Cultivars LLC would genuinely like to obtain Scions from ANY tree bearing the name Sargentii but it's not a 'fruitful' effort in our humble opinion.

Tsuga canadensis 'Pendula' / weeping Canadian Hemlock

Tsuga candensis 'Pendula' is a very graceful, weeping form of Canadian hemlock with good green coloration in the foliage. Well-grown specimens do not create a leader, but will spread out horizontally. Many derivations of this form are available in the nursery trade and no one specific form can be clearly identified from any population.
