Thujopsis dolbrata   Hiba Cedar -  A slow-growing and refined warranting more use. While similar to our western red cedar, it has bolder foliage that is glossy, deep forest green above, with beautiful, startling white markings beneath. Leaves are held in wide, flat branchlets and the overall effect is richly textural. Give it plenty of space to develop its uniform, pyramidal habit. Its texture is fine enough for a formal garden, but equally at place in the casual landscape. Grows best in bright shade in moist, well-drained soil and will also grow in full sun as long as the soil is moist and the summers not too hot. It is not heat or drought tolerant. It is slow-growing and reaches 10 to 15 feet tall by 4 to 6 feet wide in 10 years, maturing to 30 to 50 feet tall by 10 to 20 feet wide. Zones 5-8

Tsuga canadensis 'Moon Frost' Moon Frost Hemlock - Bright white new growth, reminiscent of the glow of frost on a moonlit night.

Grows to 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide. Prefers Partial Sun to Partial Shade.Zones 4 - 8      
Tsuga canadensis 'Pendula' Pendula  - Looks good at all ages. When young it has a charming mounding habit as its branches reach outwards and droop elegantly at their tips. With age it takes on a decidedly animated character, with increasing wingspan and variation in texture. The trick to this evergreen conifer is to give it plenty space in which to develop its characteristic and pleasing mature habit. Grows well in full sun as long as the soil is not dry. It also thrives in the dappled light under tall trees or with a half day of sun, either morning or afternoon. Water plants regularly when they are young; they become drought tolerant once established. This conifer appreciates some organic content in the soil. With mature plants, consider thoughtful pruning of small side branches to reveal the extraordinary branching structure hidden beneath this shrub’s dense canopy. Grows to 5 feet high by 8 feet wide in ten years. After several decades this slow-growing coniferous evergreen can reach 10 to 15 feet tall and twice as wide. Zone 3-8

Older branches develop orange-brown bark. It prefers moist, well-drained soil. It resents hot, full-sun sites and should be grown in shaded to partially shaded conditions. Ten-year size for this northern Japanese hemlock is 8 to 10'. It grows very slowly to 30 to 40' high and 15 to 20'. Zones 5-9
