Magic Gold is a novelty Japanese Larch from the Netherlands, introduced in 2016 at GrootGroenPlus trade fair where it was awarded gold medal, how typical. It is a deciduous conifer with golden yellow, soft needles that do not suffer from sunscorch. It grows relatively fast forming a prostrate shrub with shorter upward branches.

It looks great as a shrub as well as grafted as a small tree. It can find its place in any garden or front yards of the smallest size. It will look great mulched with standard brown mulch as well as pebbles or decorative gravel of grey/white colour tones. Being very new its ultimate size is only estimated to about 1.5 m.

Larch hates wet soil. If it dies for no obvious reason it is often due to water-logged soil. Grow it in any well-drained, preferably deep soil in full sun. It can be pruned in early spring or shaped in early summer. Fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4).
