Cedrus Species?


cant decide between the common larch versus japanese larch

jap larch is good bonsai tree  ….. habit is good for graceful bonsai…

if i had to bet it would be leaning towards japanese large cultivar … which i dont know… would be many

cant go any further here

Could this be Cedrus atlantica ‘glauca pendula’ by any chance?

Just a guess.

Adding two more pictures…… Attachments (2)
