Larix decidua 'Horstmann's Recurva'

Horstmann’s Recurved European Larch

Medusa comes to mind when viewing this unusual, deciduous conifer with seriously curly “hair.” Larix decidua ‘Horstmann’s Recurva’ develops wispy branches that twist and curl to fantastic effect, especially in winter, after needle drop. In late winter, rosy buds swell along the gray curlicues and herald the coming longer days earlier than other conifers. Shaving-brush clusters of bright green needles erupt in spring, soften during summer and fire up to golden yellow for fall. A seasonal stunner, for full sun and moist soil in summer.
