Tsuga canadensis Photo Gallery 2010

Cruising right along, I hope to be finished with both the online and DVD format database. It's actually been a fun job, albeit time consuming. Sometimes I need to rest from moving/watering/weeding plants!

I'll probably mis-label 1/5th of these plants until I get better at identifying cultivars. There are sooo many!

Tsuga canadensis 'Gentsch Dwarf Globe'.

'Geneva'

'Harmon'

'Bennett'

'Perfecta Nana'. At least bought as such. One of the smallest, slowest growing plants I have, it's put on an inch or two in 2 years.
Photobucket

'Molalla'. Named after a local town in Oregon I believe.
Photobucket

'Jeddeloh'. A ground hugging, mounding hemlock. Fairly common.

More to come, please share some of yours.

Tsuga canadensis 'Mount Hood' This pic was taken last year. Very white right now. In the next couple days will try to take an undated pic.

A few more tsuga's while I roast in the heat!

Tsuga canadensis 'Bacon Cristate'. Curious name to be sure, is it right Edwin? This plant is very happy in full-sun.
Photobucket

'Jan Verkade'. Seriously mis-labled!!
Photobucket

Tsuga heterophylla 'Thorson's Weeper'. Of the more rare 'western-hemlock' species, nevertheless a great, strict weeper.
Photobucket

Tsuga canadensis 'Contorta'. Unusual.
Photobucket

'Vermeulen Wintergold'. Contrary to the name, a dark green in Winter, the new push is quite bright though and remains so into Summer. This specimen gets less then two hours of sun.
Photobucket

More tomorrow - LOTS of hemlock!

Excellent collection of Hemlock's, Will. I have a potted Tsuga mertensiana that I shall plant, but no other Hemlocks.

All my Hemlock photos I'm sure I've posted on the "Parade" threads.

Thanks, take care.

Will, I think 'Vermeulen's Wintergold' should be a striking gold in the winter ...just wondering if you have the correct plant or is it a climate thing ?

RE: Tsuga canadensis Photo Gallery 2010

Stephen, I believe this specimen may be incorrectly labeled at purchase(no gold in winter) as it's similar to 'New Gold' in that the new growth is sunkissed with gold in moderate sunlight. For the record, I did have a couple of 'Vermeulen's Wintergold' go bright gold this Winter.

Dax, I sort of 'ran into' a lot of these cultivars as I was looking to fill my shady spots with color and texture and I really like how hemlock looks.

Tsuga canadensis 'Albospicta'. Subtle white tips on new growth, I was happy just to find this guy on the cheap. Grows maybe 6-8" a year.

A closeup.

'New Gold'. This specimen hasn't colored much in a mostly shade environment. I have another specimen of 'New Gold' in a bit more sun and the differences is noticable.
Photobucket

'Nana'. A blurry shot of it no less!
Photobucket

'Bergmann's Snowflake'. Another plant with mild varigation.
Photobucket

'Ashfield Weeper'. A nice, fast growing weeper.
Photobucket

'Woodrose'. A brighter conifer for the shade, this specimen gets filtered sunlight only.
Photobucket

'Jervis'. A very slow growing plant, I'd guesstimate this specimen at about 10-12 years.
Photobucket

I plan on making a tsuga mertensiana gallery in a week or two.

RE: Tsuga canadensis Photo Gallery 2010

Will, let me see if I can help you with this topic:

'Gentsch Dwarf Globe' aka 'Gentsch Dwarf' and 'Gentsch Globe' must be written as 'Palomino'.

'Bacon Cristate' is written in the good way, it's named by Ralph Bacon'.
Formerly name was 'Bacon #1'.

'Jan Verkade' is the right name.
It origaneted from the Verkade Nursery from Wayne, N.J.

Tsuga heterophylla 'Thorson's Weeping'
Must be written as 'Thorsen's Weeping'

'Albospicta' must be written as 'Albospica'

'Bergmann's Snowflake' must be written as 'Bergman's Snowflake'.
I'm not sure if this is the same one as 'Bergman's Frosty' which is now only 'Frosty'.

That's a neat looking cultivar Dax.

Dave are you going to stake yours higher? I've been thinking about taking mine as high as I can and letting it go. Might take 10 years to get it up there!

Tsuga canadensis 'Mt. Jefferson'. A flat-growing dwarf or so I understand.
Photobucket

'Sargentii'. I believe synonamous with 'Pendula'. A weeping tree that has to be staked into form. I'm letting my get established before I get crazy with it.
Photobucket

'Starker's Dwarf'.

I'll try and find the rest of my cultivars in the next few days.

RE: Tsuga canadensis Photo Gallery 2010

Coniferjoy, are 'Abbott's Pygmy' & 'Abbott's Dwarf' different or a misnomer for the same?

RE: Tsuga canadensis Photo Gallery 2010

One more.

Severnside, These are 2 differend Tsuga canadensis cultivars.
'Abbott's Dwarf' will grow as a conical bush.
'Abbott's Pygmy' aka 'Pygmaea' is probably one of the smallest cultivars of this species, forming an irregular globe.
I hope I helped you with this info.

Maria, you have a nice "baby" 'Everitt's Golden'.
In about 20 years it will look like this one which is growing at my Pinetum.

I've had this Tsuga canadensis, 'Sargent's Weeping' for about 20 years. It's in need of some pruning. I hope I got the name right.

Tsuga canadensis, 'Sargent's Weeping'.

RE: Tsuga canadensis Photo Gallery 2010

This one was given to me. I have no idea what the cultivar is, only that is a Tsuga canadensis.

I bought this Tsuga canadensis, but it had no tag. It splits real easy.
