Larix kaempferi 'Stiff Weeping' - Japanese Larch

Genus: Larix.

Species: Larix kaempferi.

Stiff Weeping is a deciduous larch with a compact, graceful, weeping form - only reaching an approximate eventual height of 2.5m with a spread of 1m. The needles are a delicate, soft green colour in spring and summer and they turn a gorgeous, golden yellow colour in autumn. All the stems are, as suggested by the name, strongly weeping but if you would like a slightly taller tree, you can train a stem up a bamboo cane and then allow it to weep when it reaches your desired height.
As a very compact sized tree it is suitable for small gardens, patios and containers and also looks very attractive near to a pond or stream.
