The Rampant Gardener

The Rampant Gardener

The Hybrid Larch is a conifer which first grew in Scotland on the Dunkeld estate when two different parent trees, the Japanese Larch and the European Larch, were crossed. The resulting hybrid is a natural tree of the mountains with a straight, tapering conical trunk. Long lower branches spread with a downward tendency with the tips turning up again.
The hybrid offspring can be nearly Japanese type or nearly European type but will grow faster, are hardier and more resistant than either parent. These exceptional characteristics are given the general term “hybrid vigour”. Deep, moist, alkaline and well-drained soils are best for growth and the Larch enjoys mountain settings. The unusual delicate shape and excellent colours throughout the year make the Larch a great tree for landscape purposes. It is often planted as a visual contrast, adding appeal and relief to the eye, especially in coniferous forest landscapes.
