Tree of the Week 

Larch's Beautiful Winter OutlineLarch

Larix decidua--European Larch 

Hardiness Zones: 2 to 6 
Height: 75 ft
Spread: 30 ft
Form: pyramidal 
Type: narrow-leaved deciduous tree 
Annual Growth Rate: 12 to 18 inches 

Comments: The larches are unusual in that they are conifers that lose their leaves in the fall. Before the leaves drop they turn a spectacular yellow. Larches are often the last tree to color in the fall. The tree grows in swampy conditions and so can live well in a site with a moist soil and exposure to full sun.

Cultivars: 
'Pendula' - Cultivar with a weeping habit.
