The Weeping Canadian hemlock (Tsuga canadensis ‘Sargentii’) is a cultivar of the Eastern hemlock. It features numerous pendulous branches and is most effectively employed near water, in rock gardens or on embankments. The tree is usually trained to grow several feet tall and then allowed to spread up to two times its height. The needles are dark green and alternate arranged. The Eastern hemlock is native to America. The cultivar was first introduced in horticulture by Mrs. Henry Winthrop Sargent in A.J. Downing’s 1875 edition Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Landscape gardening.
