Weeping larch is a very unique looking tree. Pendulous branches gracefully weep to the ground, looking like a waterfall pouring off a mountainside. Foliage is needle-like but very soft textured. Without training, the plant will not grow any taller, but will become more ground cover-like.
Coarse textured foliage with powdery stems. Upright growing plant looks great in hedges.
Yellow strap-like flowers appear in late fall. They have a unique freshly sweet smell. Sometimes flowers will have some red tint to them. Fall color is a medium yellow. Prefers to have good rich soil. Naturally occurs in woodlands.
