Tsuga canadensis 'Globosa Erecta'
|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 grows into a pleasing soft, round oval composed of many thin erect branches with lateral shoots. The shape gives a gentler effect than many compact, dwarf conifers.
