Japanese Larch Bonsai Material
Japanese larch, Larix kaempferii, needs little introduction. A most exciting 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 bonsai shaping with wire is a simple and safe job to do. A very easy tree to develop as bonsai.
A nice chunky larch collected three years back and now very well established. Good basic branch structure can produce a very mature image in just a couple of seasons. Overall this will make a good and powerful little bonsai tree. Ready for first work this winter.
