Larix decidua 'Julian's Weeper' / Julian's Weeper European larch

Larix decidua 'Julian's Weeper' is a strong-growing strictly weeping selection of European larch that will form a low mound of branches unless its leaders are staked up. With diligent care it can be trained to become a spectacular cascade with branches weeping to the ground. It could even be trained to grow on a rounded arch over a walkway for an elegant effect. Mature dimensions are based entirely on staking, pruning and other maintenance. Terminal branches will extend 12 to 18 inches (30 - 45 cm) yearly presenting an idea of a specimen's potential impact on the landscape.

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in 1982 by Yamina Rare Plants Nursery, Monbulk, Victoria, Australia.
