Larix kaempferi 'Diana'

Item 5256


There are very few rules in gardening, but perhaps the most important one is to work within your zone. Choosing plants that grow and thrive in your particular climate is the very first step toward having a beautiful garden. Learn more >

USDA Zone:
  • Light Needs
    Full sun to Partial sun
  • Watering Needs
    Water regularly, when top 3 inches of soil is dry.

Contorted branches make this smaller-growing larch a striking accent in the landscape. Soft, twirled blue-green needles turn golden yellow in the fall before dropping, leaving a bare, twisted corkscrew-like form. Makes a wonderful focal point as a single tree. Attractive when planted with dark green conifers and shrubs for color contrast. Deciduous.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.


The cones of Larix Kaempferi have reflexed scales which give a rosette appearance, almost like the petals of a hybrid tea rose, and are perhaps the easiest and most reliable way to distinguish this species from L. decidua.
