Larix (Larch)

The genus Larix, commonly known as a larch, are a bit unusual because they are classified as deciduous conifers. Unlike most conifers, larches produce beautiful fall color, then shed their needle-like leaves, and push bright new growth each spring. These seasonal changes, combined with the graceful and unique growth habits, offer beauty and year-round interest. The upright, dwarf, and weeping forms will thrive in sites with ample moisture in full sun or light shade. Extremely cold hardy, larch trees grow best in northern regions where they tolerate heavy, wet soils.
