Bonsai Comments:

American Larch or Tamarack considered a superior Larch species, Larix laricina, is a popular bonsai because their trunks grow thick when young and the bright green like leaves turn a lovely golden yellow in autumn.
This is a hardy tree that likes cold weather zones 2-6 and can withstand regular pruning as well as serious pruning before the tree starts growing.Place this bonsai outside year round. It likes full sun but needs to be protected during the hot summer afternoons. The Bonsai will produce cones but they are small, so they seem in proportion to the tree.
