Larix - Larches

Larix (Larches) are deciduous conifers of conical habit, with outstanding fall color. Among the earliest trees to come into leaf in spring, their gray or blue-green needles turn bright yellow before being shed in the fall. Small, erect cones persist on the tree, falling long after the seeds have dispersed. Adding majesty and elegance, Larches make wonderful specimens in the large landscape.
