Discovered at Dunkeld, Perthshire, around 1904, this hybrid is less susceptible to disease than the Common Larch.
Discovered at Dunkeld, Perthshire, around 1904, this hybrid is particularly robust and is a cross between Larix decidua and Larix kaempferi.
In truth all the Larch we grow have very similar attributes and are difficult to distinguish.
I would choose this cultivar for its toughness. It is a large and fast growing tree with good timber and amenity value.
Ideal for street verges or parkland, this deciduous conifer is, in my opinion, greatly underused.
There is something primeval about Larch, a wonderful relic to an age before us.
Mature height: 20m+
