Very durable specimen that tolerates heat, cold, drought, and seacoast exposure. Evergreen. Slow-growing; 10-ft tall and 2-3 ft wide.

Canadian Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis): Popular evergreen tree having a graceful, densely-branched form. Excellent when used for screening, groupings and accents. Trim into a lovely hedge that thrives under most conditions. Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat. :

Pinus Strobus "nana" is a slower grower and will eventually reach 4.5' tall by 8' wide. It's soft, evergreen and really lovely. Bullet proof too!

Dwarf pine tree Pinus strobus 'Nana' in garden - in some pics it looks green, in others, blue. I'll have to visit a nursery to learn the true color.
