Minikin Japanese Hemlock - Tsuga diversifolia 'Minikin' 

New to our inventory. I keep thinking it's a Balsam Fir because of it's long, flat leaves. I'm looking forward to seeing how this little guy grows up. 

Here's a recap of what the grower says about this fun tree: "Small, wide, green, blunt-tipped needles sit at different angles along reddish brown shoots occasionally exposing their silvery-white undersides to give Tsuga diversifolia ‘Minikin’ a special sparkle. Slow growing and globe shaped when young, it will become more vigorous and oval shaped. Hardy and thrives in many climates being tolerant of full sun to shady conditions when planted in well-drained, moist soil."

  • Growth rate: 3 to 6" per year
  • Growth shape is broad upright
  • Cold hardy to -30F or Zones 4 to 7
  • Heat Zones 8 - 1
  • Full, cool sun or part sun
  • Regular water
  • Pot shown is 4 inches in diameter
  • An outdoor plant
