2009 October Plant of the Month
Pseudolarix amabilis - Golden Larch is a deciduous conifer that is known for it's "spectacular - fresh green spring foliage and - golden yellow fall color" (Dirr's manual, 2009). Lee Squires presented Golden Larch as the LNA Plant of the month; he mentioned it's preference for acid soils. At Cave Hill there is a recently planted Golden Larch near the office parking area and a large, truly magnicient, one in section 125. My pictures below are from Cave Hill and a private Louisville garden.
