European Hybrid Larch Bonsai Tree 

Larix leptolepis, is a European hybrid larch that's tough and has beautiful small leaves. A most exciting and super tough species to cultivate as bonsai. The tree exhibits a wonderful change of character as the seasons roll around. Winter brings a hard, rough looking character to the tree without it's leaves. However spring time is undoubtedly the best as the little green 'shaving brushes' of foliage push out of the dark craggy twigs. Autumn brings a pale lemon yellow colour before leaf fall. Super tough and perfect for bonsai cultivation. Hardy to below -40 Celsius. Larch appreciate a little protection from summer heat. Keep very well watered and fertilize throughout the growing season. Once mature larch produce little cones quite freely. The tree is very flexible so shaping with wire is a simple and safe job to do. A very easy tree to develop as bonsai.

Grown from seed nearly 20 years ago. A beautiful small size larch with a powerful twisted trunk. It's early days for the branch development but the tree has a lot to work with over the winter. Has beautiful craggy bark. A special little bonsai indeed that's really coming into it's own now.

Planted in an unglazed bonsai pot.
