“European Larch is native to parts of Europe.
It can reach a height of 150 feet. The cones are long, red when immature that turn brown later and open to release the seeds when mature. The old cones remain on the tree for several years and turn grey or black.
The bark is used in traditional medicine as an astringent and to treat haemorrhage and cystitis. The resin has been used as a preservative and varnish.
It is a popular Bonsai species and also planted as an ornamental tree in gardens and parks.”
