What Houzz contributors are saying:

Weeping Canadian Hemlock(Tsuga canadensis 'Pendula')This group of spreading conifers has visually elevated arthritis to an art form. Some specimens creep along the ground, meandering and fanning outward. Others are staked upright, then cascade gently back to the earth. All are worth growing. Cultivars to look for include Sargeant's Weeping, Cole's Prostrate and Verkode's Recurva. As with the Norway spruce, it is best to handpick this tree for your specific space. Use extra care when transporting these because some cultivars are quite brittle.A caution regarding hemlocks: if you live in an area of the country that has been invaded by the dreaded bug called woolly adelgid, you may want to skip over this group of conifers. Most of these hemlocks remain relatively small and could be sprayed if necessary.USDA zones: 4 to 8Water requirement: AverageLight requirement: Full sun to partial shadeMature size: Generally from 2 to 8 feet tall, depending upon the cultivar and how the plant is stakedWhen to plant: Fall or spring
