Tsuga chinensis, also known as Chinese Hemlock, is a majestic large conical tree native to central and western China. Its bark is blackish brown in color and the newly formed periderm is a purplish red. With olive green needle-like leaves that are grooved and keeled on top, Tsuga chinensis makes a striking addition to any landscape. The tree produces dark purple cones that can be used to make spruce beer, and young shoot tips can be brewed into a tasty herbal tea. The inner bark can also be used as a thickening agent in soups or mixed with cereals to make bread. Choose Tsuga chinensis to add beauty and unique taste to your garden.
