    In the boulevard plantings along the Mount Seymour Parkway (North Van) near the west end there is a string of larches that seem to have blue needles, rather than the usual green. Is this a defined cultivar or species? I can't find any reference to blue larches in the on-line databases I've looked at.

    Agree that Japanese Larch is the most likely. Try to get close-up photos of any cones too, if you can.
