A famous American larch (Aka Tamarack – Larix laricina) in full fall color (larch are one of a small handful of deciduous conifer in the world). The artist is ‘Larch Master’ Nick Lenz. It’s a massive tree. Much bigger than you might think based on this photo We (Stone Lantern) are bringing about 30 field grown larches to the 6th U.S. National Bonsai Exhibition (September 8th & 9th in Rochester, NY – the one bonsai event not to miss!) Almost all of our larches are 15 to 20 years old and most are in nursery pots and have had minimal training. Perfect for the do-it-yourself crowd.  We’ll also have a few small Shimpaku junipers and two or three Ficus. And of course our famous Roshi Bonsai tools, plenty of bonsai wire at the lowest prices anywhere and lots of other essential bonsai items We’ve got a few mediocre cell photos below (better than nothing) and some text on larch care that you might find helpful. Larch care for the American larch (Larix laricina) Location. Larches do best in full sun, though you can grow them in light shade. Heavy shade doesn’t work that well and indoors is taboo Continued below… Here’s one on a Green T turntable that we’re bringing. We’ll bring the turntable too. And remember, these were shot on my cell by a rank amateur Larch care continued from above Winter care. Don’t forget, larches are one of a handful of deciduous conifers, so don’t panic when the needles turn yellow and start falling off…
