(European Larch)

A "green dreadlocks" weeping selection of the European larch, 'Julian's Weeper' has finely textured, green needles that are very bright green when they first emerge and turn golden yellow in autumn and drop away in time for winter. Its branches become very long and will eventually sweep the ground, so it must be limbed up. Unpruned specimens look a lot like Cousin It. This unique selection was introduced by Don and Peter Teese at Yamina Rare Plant Nursery in Monbulk, Australia.

(European Larch, Weeping European Larch)

Having mop-like, pendent branches, the weeping European larch has finely textured, soft green needles that become yellow in autumn and drop away in time for winter. Its branches can become very long and eventually sweep the ground. There are several forms of ‘Pendula.’ Most can reach substantial heights when mature.

Few true conifers lose there needles in winter, but those that do tend to have soft, pliable foliage and a lofty, architectural grace. The European larch is no exception. This valuable...

(Japanese Larch)

A tall, pyramidal tree with somewhat drooping and contorted branches, the Japanese larch has finely textured, short tufts of blue-green needles that become yellow in autumn and drop away in time for winter. From Japan, this cone-bearing tree is deciduous with a beige-gray or rusty brown bark that is scaly and lightly ridged. When young it is an upright, pyramid-like tree, but then ages to have quite an open habit with truly drooping, horizontal branches.

In spring the youngest, purpled-tinged...

From Japan, this cone-bearing tree is deciduous with a beige-gray or rusty brown bark that is scaly and lightly ridged.

(Eastern Larch, Tamarack)

Illuminating the fall landscape with golden yellow needles, tamarack reaches skyward with its tall, open-branched, pyramid-like form. A tree native to much of Canada and the far northern United States, it is a relatively slow-growing deciduous conifer that thrives where soils are moist and summers cool. It is often found growing in bogs alongside wild blueberries and cranberries.

The needles are green to blue-green, short, three-sided and arranged in spiraled clusters atop short stubby spurs....

(Blue Sparkler Eastern Larch, Eastern Larch)

Brightening the landscape with a dense foliar display of light blue-green needles, Blue Sparkler dwarf tamarack also heralds fall with golden yellow needles. Native to much of Canada and the extreme northern United States, this variety was selected by Sid Waxman of the University of Connecticut. It is a vigorous, dwarfed, deciduous shrub that will become broader than tall.

The needles are bright blue-green, short, three-sided and arranged densely in spiral clusters atop short stubby spurs. The...
