Pseudolarix amabalis  
Golden Larch     

Pseudolarix amabalis Golden larch


This relative of the true larches is of more restrained and symmetric growth when young.  It starts living up to its name in late summer, especially if the weather is hot and dry.  Holds its golden color longer in the fall than any of the true larches.  This tree can eventually get to 50' or more, but is much slower growing than the true larches.  Easy to prune to any desired size. Appears to grow very well in a pot. Might make a nice bonsai. although rarely seen as such.   Zones 4-7.  

River Rock Nursery is a retail, mail order nursery, also open daily.
