Larix kaempferi 'Blue Dwarf' / Blue Dwarf Japanese larch

Larix kaempferi 'Blue Dwarf' is a robust, irregular globose, dwarf selection of Japanese larch with long silver-Blue foliage. After 10 years, a mature specimen will measure 28 inches (70 cm) tall and wide, and annual growth rate of 2 to 3 inches (5 - 7.5 cm).
