Larix decidua 'Little Bogle' / Little Bogle European larch

Larix decidua 'Little Bogle' is an bushy, irregular upright growing selection of European larch with rich dark green foliage which turns golden yellow before being shed in the fall. Branchlets often grow with a distinct slight twist. It is one of the few of such selections that will form a distinct leader at a young age. These qualities make for significant architectural interest in the landscape.

After 10 years of growth. a mature specimen will measure 4 feet (1.3 m) tall and 3 feet (1 m) wide, an annual growth rate of 4 to 5 inches (10 - 12.5 cm).

This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found in 1990 and introduced to the nursery trade by Yamina Rare Plant Nursery, Monbulk, Victoria, Australia.
