Tsuga canadensis 'Brandley'
|Among the most graceful of the coniferous, narrow-leafed, evergreen trees growing in North America, these mostly gigantic, pyramidal trees have unusually graceful foliage. Branches are horizontal or drooping. Leaves are needlelike, flattened, and narrowed at the base. Small brown cones, 1 to 1½ inches long, hang down from the branches. Best in acid soil, good rainfall, and high summer humidity. Protect from hot sun and wind. Shallow-rooted and therefore easily transplanted with a ball of soil around the roots. Can be sheared to excellent hedges. Among the finest evergreen trees for park, lawn, or specimen plantings, as well as windbreaks.
This dwarf starts as a compact globe, growing taller to a mounded to loosely pyramidal form with graceful, nodding branch tips, until it forms a perfect miniature. Christmas tree shape. Ideal for large containers, rock gardens, or foundation plantings.
