Weeping European Larch: Larix decidua 'Pendula' - 16 inch pot - 5-6 foot tall
Larix decidua 'Pendula' is a deciduous conifer with gracefully weeping branches and soft green needles. It adds elegance and drama to the landscape, especially in water or woodland gardens.
Caring for Larix decidua, commonly known as European Larch, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. This deciduous conifer prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Plant it in a location that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. European Larch is relatively tolerant of different soil types, but it thrives in moist, acidic soils. Water the tree regularly, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil evenly moist. Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. Prune the tree in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or diseased branches and shape its growth. European Larch is generally resistant to pests and diseases, making it a low-maintenance choice for your landscape. With proper care, your Larix decidua will provide you with beautiful, soft, green needles in the growing season and stunning golden fall foliage, adding beauty and charm to your outdoor space.
