f. pendula (Laws.) R. E. Fries

L. europaea pendula Laws

The epithet pendula has been attached to many different trees of more or less pendulous habit. For a discussion see Elwes and Henry, Tr. Gt. Brit. & Irel., Vol. 2, p. 350, but it should be noted that the Henham Hall tree mentioned there belongs to L. × pendula, not to the common larch – an error later corrected by Henry.
