Root Over Rock Larch

Post  Twisted Trees on Thu Feb 14, 2013 4:44 pm

I collected this larch about seven years ago and with the heavy split root i decided to put it on a rock. After four years in the garden I planted it in it's current mica pot in 2010. I just lowered the crown in order to fill in a gap between the crown and the rest of the lower foliage.

Generally speaking, I don't like tall, upright trees growing root over rock, but this one works nicely. Good job.

Great fix to the crown; it looks like it "always" grew that way. Please let us see it after the needles emerge.

Here is a photo from last year showing the gap that I wanted to fill in.
