Winter is Coming, Plant a Conifer!
by Rebecca, August 3, 2019

Love hemlocks and this is a very special one, gold in winter, won\'t outgrow your garden, easy care. What more could you want. Glows in the winter much like an Abies nodrmaniana \'Golden Spreader\", but so much easier to grow!

Handsome Hemlock

This hemlock is thriving in a shady location. It is already showing new growth and we couldn't be more pleased with it.

A beacon of light

This is a really cool hemlock! I saw pictures online last year and I was excited to be able to purchase it. An excellent value, the tree is a solid 2.5'x2.5' and has gorgeous coloring - yellow/golden with hints of lime green towards the center. I've got it planted in a semi-shaded area in the front yard with some dwarf conifers and perennials, it is thriving. Super happy with my purchase.
