Larch: The Larch (Larix) is an ideal conifer species for Bonsai, with its soft needles and great strength in back budding. Unlike most conifers, the Larch is deciduous and will lose its foliage in late fall. When maturing, Larch have a flakey rough bark, and the needles turn a beautiful golden yellow in the fall. Larch's are very frost-hardy, making them an excellent choice as outdoor Bonsai for Canada. 


Larch grows well in full sun and can benefit from afternoon shade in the middle of summer when the sun is brightest. Although very frost-hardy, they should be winterized once potted into a Bonsai pot. 


  1. Larch like, well-draining soil. When watering, make sure to water throughout and let the soil dry to 25% before watering again.

  • Training: Larch takes very well to wiring, which should be done in the winter or early spring before buds come out. New branches/shoots should be reduced to 2-3 buds to develop fine ramification. 

  • Repotting: During development, Larch's need to be repotted every 2-3 years. During refinement, depending on the size of the pot, this should most likely be done every other year. 


YOUNG: 12"-24" tall, comes in a 6" grower's pot. (Young Larches have already been wired for trunk movement).

MATURE: 12"-16" tall, comes in a 10" handmade Bonsai pot.

Great Product

I received this Larch in good condition and it was already showing signs of growth after a couple of days. This company goes above and beyond with their products!

I love my little Larch which arrived in perfect condition. As I am a rookie, I was pleased it was so easy to wire and form into a shape with lots of curves
