• Japanese Larch
    Larix kaempferi

    Native to Japan this deciduous conifer tree has a straight trunk accented by nice soft needles. Grown for the weathered looking, rust brown bark that is reddish-brown, rugged and furrowed, showing nicely in the winter. Form varies from one tree to the next making it perfect for bonsai culture. Foliage turns a brilliant yellow in the fall for a short time but long enough to make nice show. 1 1/2-inch-long upright cones are clustered along the branches, making a terrific display throughout the year. The tree makes a great all purpose tree and is excellent as a standard outdoor tree of container plant.

    Larch should be grown in rich, well-drained, slightly acidic soil. Keep moist and place in full sun to part shade. Perfect for Bonsai culture. Hardy outdoors to zone 5. Start seed in standard potting mix or bonsai soil.
