Tsuga canadensis' Gentsch White' photo gallery

Discovered by Long Island nurseryman Otto Gentsch many years ago, this globe-shaped shrub displays variegation similar to 'Frosty' but is a bit faster-growing with more cream-colored branch trips that are especially colorful in fall and winter. Annual shearing promotes fresh new color and helps maintain the compact form. Like all hemlocks it prefers partially shaded conditions and moist but well-drained soil.

I really do like the Hemlocks with frosty white growth. This one is especially nice.

....and in regions with lots of snow in the winter, this plant requires wrapping to prevent it being flattened by heavy snow/ice load.
