Golden Larch Bonsai Tree 
Pseudolarix amabilis - Pseudolarix amabilis is commonly known as Golden Larch, though it is not a true larch (Larix), being more closely related to Keteleeria, Abies and Cedrus. It is native to eastern China, occurring in small areas in the mountains of southern Anhui, Zhejiang, Fujian, Jiangxi, Hunan, Hubei and eastern Sichuan, at altitudes of 100-1500 m.

It is a deciduous tree reaching 30-40 m tall, with a broad conic crown. The shoots are similar to a larch. The leaves are bright green/ yellow, they turn a brilliant golden yellow before falling in the autumn, hence the common name. The cones are distinctive, superficially resembling a small globe artichoke; they mature about 7 months after pollination, when (like fir and cedar cones) they disintegrate to release the winged seeds.

The species stands high summer temperatures much better than larch but is still fully hardy in the U.K. Keep well watered in summer and in full sun. Repotting should be done just as the buds begin to open in spring. Our No1 Bonsai Soil Mix is a perfect match for this species. Only ever prune the roots very lightly.
