Back again friends. See here a weeping deciduous tree with needle-like leaves, seemingly flowing directly from the branch or stem.

Weeping Larch?

Here is a link that might be useful: Larix decidua 'Pendula'

RE: Weeping deciduous needle-like tree

the only way to tell decidua from kaempheri.. is the cones.. and the pink color on the new growth ...

and i cant do it... close up... conifer forum...

its browning from drought....

Just FYI: you can always put a second photo in a follow-up post; there's no need to start a second thread just to post a second photo.

Also, as various posts are made to different threads, it's unlikely two threads posted a few minutes apart will remain close together on the forum index page over the course of several hours or 2-3 days. It quickly becomes difficult-to-impossible to compare photos on different threads.

BTW ... this is one of the conifers.. that will ONLY grow as tall as you train it ...

the only limit to height.. is how tall a stake you can tie it to ...

yours will barely get taller.. unless you make it so ..

and.. the problem with the second latin name.. is that the two have been mixed up in the trade for a decade or two ... for all practical purposes.. 99.9% of us.. could not tell the difference.. nor give a whit about it.. lol ...

Can tell by the growth habit and the leaf color that this is the common weeping form of Japanese larch sold incorrectly as weeping European larch. Unless staked to grow tall and narrow the plant shown has run out of space.
