Pseudolarix (Greek, pseudos, false, and Larix; being similar to, but not a true larch). Syn., Lari- copsis. Pinaceae. Golden Larch. Ornamental tree, grown for its handsome feathery foliage.

Deciduous, with horizontally spreading whorled branches: lvs. linear, in dense clusters on short spurs, those of the young shoots spirally arranged: staminate fls. catkin-like, slender-stalked and clustered at the end of short spurs; cone short-stalked, pendent, with ovate-lanceolate deciduous scales and with bracts about half as long as the scales; each scale with 2 seeds with the wings nearly as long as the scale.—The only species is known wild only from a restricted region in E. China, where it grows in the mountains at an altitude of about 3,000-4,000 ft. It is closely allied to Larix, but differs by the stalked, pendulous, clustered, staminate fls. and by the deciduous cone-scales, which separate from the axis at maturity, as in the fir.The golden larch is a beautiful tree with its long, spreading branches pendulous at the extremities and clothed with light green feathery foliage turning to a clear yellow in fall. The tree seems to remain free from insect pests and fungous diseases and is hardy in Massachusetts, and probably farther north. It requires a sunny open position and a well-drained moderately moist soil ; it does not thrive nor look well if crowded by other trees. The golden larch should be raised only from seeds. If grafted on its own roots or on the common larch, as is sometimes done, it rarely grows into a symmetrical tree. CH
