I fell in love with Larix about 5 years ago when I came across a stunner of a specimen in a clients garden. It was huge and understandably just about the only thing they wanted to keep in their garden. I never fell particularly compelled to have one of my own (probably because I have so many other pine surrounding my house) until I was stopped in my tracks by this picture:
Larix decidua Pendula (Weeping Larch) is my newest plant obsession. I have the perfect place for it and just like in the picture, I plan to put it right near my house, so that it can be kinda like a climber (at least in look) and kinda like a tree. I kinda like that idea.
And you want to know the best part of this plant? It looks turns a beautiful yellow in the fall.
Are you crushing on anything interesting?
