Tamarack Larch vs Blue Beech

Larix laricina

Carpinus caroliniana

Tamarack Larch
Blue Beech

Staff Favorite!

Tamarack is a small to medium-sized native conifer tree featuring needles that turn an attractive gold before dropping in the fall.

This cold-tolerant tree grows well in very wet conditions, as long as it is exposed to full sun.

Blue Beech is a beautiful, ornamental tree with enticing features. The foliage transforms throughout the season, offering a kaleidoscope of color. New leaves emerge reddish-purple, transforming to dark green, and then turn striking shades of yellow, orange, and red in fall. Once all the foliage has dropped, grooved, blue-grey bark becomes striking on a winter landscape.

Blue Beech has an attractive globular shape and has been successfully grown in both full shade and full sun locations. Make sure you provide ample moisture to ensure this tree thrives.
