Larix decidua 'Pendula'
Weeping European Larch
|Graceful Larches are some of the few cone-bearing trees that drop their colorful autumn foliage. Once their clusters of needle-like leaves fall, the rose-shaped cones remain, dotting the branches through winter. In spring, soft needles emerge a vibrant young green. Among the hardiest of trees, they grow in almost any soil. Prefer cool summers, and need winter chill. Sow seeds in shaded beds in fall or spring. Seedlings transplant easily. Clean up twig and cone debris under trees. Give supplemental water during dry periods. Prone to canker, rust, woolly aphids and Larch casebearer. Watch for mistletoe.
This weeping conifer has a rounded, drooping form. The branches hold long needles that turn golden in late fall. Reaches 8 to 10 feet tall and wide.
