Tree/Shrub - Item 009 - Larix Kaempferi Horstmann's Recurved
Retail Value: $80
A genuine oddity for the plant collector, this is best described as a slow-growing tall, weeping small tree with bizarrely contorted branching, distinctive in all four seasons; fuzzy foliage turns yellow in fall; a conversation piece to be sure
Horstmann's Recurved Larch has green foliage which emerges light green in spring. The twisted needle-like leaves turn an outstanding yellow in the fall. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant. The twisted gray bark and gold branches are extremely showy and add significant winter interest.
