Product Description

Also known as tamarack, larch is unique among the conifers in that it loses its needles in the autumn with a showy golden display. They turn a brilliant yellow then shed with the first frost.  Its needles are 1”-1 ½” long and grow in clusters. Larch is  fast-growing and long lived.  It grows in both sun and semi-shade but it is not drought-tolerant.

 

Sold by the bundle (10 trees per bundle).

 

Fun Fact: Many years ago when Oregon ran a contest for a design to be featured on its new license plates, the artist who won created a plate with a western larch in deep golden fall color as the center of its design. Due to many complaints about having a “dead” tree on Oregon license plates, a short time later the color of the tree was changed to green. (Source: http://www.oregon.gov/)
