This gallery is a continuation of our series of species specific galleries designed with the intention of creating a resource of inspiration as well as a source of enjoyment for all. It is our hope that those who favor the particular species featured and those who seek inspiration for designing bonsai of this species will find these galleries valuable and educational.

We have compiled the photographs in these galleries from submitted photographs, various sources such as contest entries and galleries here at AoB. This gallery, like all of our galleries, is meant to be dynamic and to grow as more trees are submitted. Please send any trees you feel would add to this gallery to will@artofbonsai.org for consideration.

Larix offers the bonsaist a unusual medium in the form of a deciduous conifer, bringing fresh, light foliage which turns golden in the fall and leaving the rare sight of a defoliated conifer in the winter. Besides offering seasonal change, the small needles and proportional cones, as compared to other conifers, a fast rate of growth, and a form that lends itself to many styles, help to make Larix a must have for any enthusiasts with the climate to keep them.

This gallery is dedicated to the Larch and those who cultivate, style, and display them. There are few sights more visually appealing than that of an well designed Larch and the world of bonsai would certainly be far less without such examples of nature.

Special thanks to Heather Hartman for doing all the legwork for this gallery.

We hope that you find the follow photographs as inspiring and enjoyable as we do.
