Native to: Japanese larch grows naturally on volcanic mountain slopes on the island of hondo, japan. Other species of larch occur in north america and europe.
Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - the japanese larch is a most handsome tree, tall and symmetrically cone shaped, with brilliant glowing yellow foliage in fall. In late winter, the reddish shoots are especially attractive. Not for small spaces, this beauty is best suited for campuses, parks and estate lawns. The dwarf and bushy cultivars are useful in mixed hedges or as specimens. Smaller cultivars of japanese larch are often cultivated for bonsai. Care: the larches prefer a moist soil on the acidic side. Under good conditions with ample soil moisture, the fast growing japanese larch should be 20 ft tall in 15 years, 50 ft tall in 40 years, and 90 ft tall at maturity in 80 years..
