I have a Larch that has been in the ground 3 years. It gets full sun, a daily sprinkling of water, yearly feeding, and is planted in sandy soil with a little garden soil mixed in. We are in the foothills of the Cascades. The problem is that it's needles are sparce and yellow, not the blue-green of description and it's not growing much - it's not much bigger than when I got it. I'm sorry I don't know exactly which kind of Larch - bought it in a local nursery and hope it's not the variety that grows to 200 ft. (occidentalis). We have cold winters, hot summers, lots of wind in the spring and summer (unfortunately) and are considered a 3B climate zone in Sunset. I don't know if I'm fighting a losing battle and should leave Larchs to the mountains where they occur naturally. Does anyone have any ideas?
