About Japanese Larch
Called “Kara-matsu” in its native Japan, Japanese Larch is a deciduous conifer whose needles turn a marvelous golden color each fall prior to falling. Displaying the unique tufted clusters of needles that characterize all Larches, the Japanese Larch distinguishes itself with foliage of a bluish, sea-green cast and rather squat cones. It’s an important forestry tree in its native land, producing wood that is tough and durable and used for many things.
At maturity, Japanese Larches are usually between 80 and 130 feet tall with strongly horizontal to pendulous branches. These trees live for several hundred years, and prefer very sunny locations with well-draining soils.

Seedling Size Chart: Small
Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
