Japanese Larch (Larix Leptolepis) Deciduous (non-evergreen) conifer.

Japanese Larch (Larix leptolepsis)although a conifer it is a deciduous tree which means sadly it does lose its leaves in the Autumn. The leaves are needle-like and can get to 5 cm long. It has a really vibrant autumn colour that lasts for a few weeks as the needles take some time to fall. Needles turn a yellow/orange and fall in the Autumn. It looks really bright in spring, when the needles are grass green and the branches are studded with small, creamy young cones and male flowers.In areas where canker is a problem for the European Larch, this disease resistant tree is usually planted instead. The Japanese Larch produces cones green or purple which ripen brown 6/8 months after pollination. Japanese Larch is a good tough pine mainly used for cladding and flooring.
