Description A beautiful evergreen with a graceful pyramidal shape. Average growth rate near 1-2' per yea and tolerant of many soil conditions except extremely dry or soggy sites. Strong drying winds that occur in prairies can inhibit growth and even kill the species. Prefers shade or at least appreciates afternoon shade but will grow in full sun. The bark is cinnamon-brown with deep ridges and furrows, and 2-3" thick on mature trees. The flat needles are about a half inch long and arranged in two horizontal ranks on the slender spreading to drooping branchlets. The foliage appears as graceful flat sprays, parallel with the ground. The pendant cones are a little less than an inch long and almost as wide at the middle; they are among the smallest of all cones. Mature size is 40-70'High x 25-35'Wide. These are from the Little Panther Creek drainage where the mature specimens, as well as, juvenile and seedlings are now dying form an introduced insect the Hemlock Wolly Adelgid, Adelges tsugae!
