Larix decidua--European Larch
Hardiness Zones: 2 to 6
Height: 75 ft
Spread: 30 ft
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.
'Pendula' - Cultivar with a weeping habit.
