Katsura tree (Large Plant)

Cercidiphyllum japonicum

Hardy Tree

A fast growing tree with a long period of interest that will delight the senses! Tiny red flowers decorate the naked branches of the Katsura Tree in spring, before the young rounded, leaves break bud in a glorious display of bronze pink foliage. As summer progresses, the foliage colours to a fresh shade of bright green, before changing once again with the autumn to a vivid gold and orange. Even the fallen autumn leaves will provide interest by filling the air with a sugary fragrance of candy-floss that is almost irresistible. Cercidiphyllum japonicum holds an RHS AGM and makes a superb multi-stemmed specimen tree for a small garden or woodland area. Ultimate height and spread: 10m (32ft).
