Plant Crush: Larix decidua ‘Pendula’

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?

    Why not use this tree as a marker for your cat? It would be beautiful, and certainly visible if the snow gets deep.

    Wavecrest Nursery in Fennville, MI grows huge specimens of this (at least they used to). I believe they have the original patent on the plant. It would definitely be cool growing up against a house–I like that idea.

    If you use it extensively plan on getting calls from anxious clients thinking the plant is dead after it drops its needles. haha

    I went to Lotusland in Santa Barbara this summer and they had climbing bamboo, chusquea coronalis that was tied up almost looking like weeping willows. They were gorgeous and I totally want them!

  5. Nice! I’ve gotta have this plant in my garden!
