Weeping Larch

Larix decidua ‘Puli’ is an elegant alternative to the common Larix d. ‘Pendula’.  When staked, its slender branches create a narrow silhouette that is more dense and lighter green than ‘Pendula’.  At the point it is no longer supported by a stake ‘Puli’ branches spread out slowly along the ground and make an effective ground-cover. It is very attractive in gardens with an Asian aesthetic. It is best grown in full sun.

  • Cold Hardiness: Zone 2
  • Sun or Shade: sun
  • Foliage Colour: green
  • Shape: weeping
  • Critter Resistance: some resistance to deer

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Weeping Larch is quite adaptable to a range of soil types but does need constant moisture.  It will require regular watering during the growing season unless it is growing in a very damp site. I t is not drought tolerant and will drop its needles if allowed to dry out.  It looks its best if it is not pruned but allowed to develop its own unique form.
