Japanese Larch Cloud Tree (Larix kaempferi)
are pleased to be offering for the first time this year our very
own shaped Japanese Larch treees (Larix kaempferi). These trees
are on their sixth year and have been shaped every winter (with
wiring) - they are now the 'S' shape but require pinching and
pruning to produce more dense clouds over the next few years -
You can , of course, choose to carry growing it upwards if you
prefer (and shape more bends into the trunk)
.Please note that this is a deciduous cloud tree, so loses
all its needles in the winter months - in late autumn the
needles turn a beautiful golden yellow before falling. We have
two sizes, 5ft and 6ft in 15litre. These may have a central cane
for support (this can be removed if you are not growing it any
taller). The top two photos show our 5ft specimens in January (in
the snow!) and Autumn as needles turn colour. The lower two
photos show our 6ft specimens in January and in October with
