Hemlock (Chinese)

Tsuga chinensis
Leafy branches of a Chinese Hemlock

Hemlocks are lovely trees, but the use of native species has been hindered by three debilitating pests: Hemlock Wooly Adelgid, Spruce Spider Mites, and Elongate Hemlock Scale. Chinese Hemlock, or Tsuga chinensis, has shown resistance to all three pests, especially Hemlock Wooly Adelgid. Compared to Canadian Hemlock, the habit is more relaxed during the growing season and more rigid during the dormant season. Leaf color is a glossy, dark green. The growth rate is fast. Chinese Hemlock tolerates varying landscape conditions and grows well in either full sun or part shade. A native of the mountains of Southeast Asia, Chinese Hemlock has become a good, all-around, vigorous performer in North America.
