Larix gmelinii (Dahurian Larch)
Larix gmelinii (Dahurian Larch) grows east of the Yenisei River in Siberia, where it hybridizes with L. sibirica to cover large areas. It features an open crown with a thin top, but is most commonly observed as low and thick. The leaves are thin, grass green in color with two white stripes on the underside. In the summer, the juvenile cones are a rich rose purple, maturing to a gleaming pale brown.
