(Eastern Larch, Newport Beauty Eastern Larch)

A tiny, dense foliar balled shrub teeming with blue-green needles, Newport Beauty dwarf tamarack also greets fall with golden yellow foliage. Native to much of Canada and the extreme northern United States, it's a dense, dwarf, deciduous conifer that very slowly becomes a rounded mass.

The needles are mildly blue-green, short, three-sided and arranged densely in spiral clusters atop short stubby spurs. The short, young branchlets are held out from the dense congestion of foliage. With considereable...

(Siberian Larch)

A tall and narrow tree with somewhat upward-held branches, the Siberian larch has finely textured, soft needles that become yellow in autumn and drop before winter. From the mountains of Europe eastward into northern and central Asia, this cone-bearing tree is deciduous with a sienna brown bark that is scaly and lightly ridged. With age it attains a very narrow pyramidal shape.

In spring the thin yellow-gray branches fill with short, soft, light green needles that have two white bands on their...

(Dawn Redwood)

This deciduous conifer is a fast-growing, imposing relative of the redwood. Native to China, it was known only from the fossil record until a few trees were discovered in 1944 and identified in 1948. Today it is grown and loved the world over for its feathery foliage, muscular trunk and magnificent, narrow, pyramidal habit. The bark is shredded and reddish brown, eventually becoming beautifully gnarled and rugged with chocolate brown and orange tones. With age, the trunk becomes broadly grooved and...

(Dawn Redwood)

Dawn redwood is grown and loved the world over for its feathery foliage, muscular trunk and magnificent, tall, triangular shape. Cultivar 'Emerald Feathers' is a native of central China and is a cone-bearing deciduous tree. It is a fairly fast growing plant, especially when young or if moisture is plentiful, always having an upright, pyramidal shape. The bark is shredded, reddish brown, eventually becoming beautifully gnarled and rugged with chocolate brown and orange tones. The trunk will become...

(Dawn Redwood)

Boasting chartreuse-yellow foliage that is fern-like in texture, the Gold Rush dawn redwood is a showpiece. This deciduous conifer is a fast-growing, imposing relative of the redwood. Native to China, dawn redwood was known only from the fossil record until a few trees were discovered in 1944 and identified in 1948; 'Gold Rush' was a seedling selected from a Japanese garden. Today it is grown and loved the world over for its yellow foliage, muscular trunk and magnificent, narrow, pyramidal habit....

(Dawn Redwood)

National dawn redwood is admired for its feathery foliage, muscular trunk and magnificent, tall, narrow shape. The dawn redwood is a native of central China and is a cone-bearing deciduous tree, but 'National' is a clone of a seedling first found at the United States National Arboretum and is slightly less cold hardy. It is a fairly fast growing plant, especially when young or if moisture is plentiful, having an upright, narrow shape. The bark is shredded, reddish brown, eventually becoming beautifully...

Golden dawn redwood is grown and loved the world over for its light green-yellow feathery foliage, muscular trunk and magnificent, tall, triangular shape. Cultivar 'Ogon' is a native of central China and is a cone-bearing deciduous tree. It grows at a medium pace, perhaps slightly faster when young or if moisture is plentiful, always having an upright, pyramidal shape. The bark is shredded, reddish brown, eventually becoming beautifully gnarled and rugged with chocolate brown and orange tones. The...

(Microbiota)

Russian arborvitae is a low, spreading, hardy evergreen with plume-like, gently drooping branches and short, smooth needles that turn from green to bronze-purple in the cold temperatures of fall and winter. Naturally found above the treeline on mountains in southeastern Siberia, this conifer grows broader with time but no higher, covering the rocky terrain. In spring its new growth is light green and gradually darkens to bright medium green as they broaden to form the flattened sprays. The branches...
