Katsura Tree

Cercidiphyllum japonicum

Hardy Tree

 Customer Rating
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
Don't be afraid of growing trees in your garden; they aren't all great big oaks and cedars. Cercidiphyllum certainly isn't. Enjoy its attractive foliage and see if you can decide what the leaves smell of. Is it toffee apple? Candy floss? Just mix a few bags of ericaceous compost into the soil on planting, and it'll virtually take care of itself. Height and spread: 10m (32').

Ideal For:
scented gardens, low maintenance garden, specimen plant, woodland garden
Flowering Period:
March, April
Position:
sun or semi shade, dappled shade

Repot Katsura tree into a larger pot using a soil based compost such as John Innes No 3, and grow on in cool conditions until large enough to be planted in its final position. When Cercidiphyllum japonicum is well grown, transplant into any non alkaline, rich, moist but free draining soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or compost into the soil prior to planting. Choose a position in sun or dappled shade with shelter from cold winds.
Feed and water katsura tree regularly until fully established. Once established, katsura require little attention except for the occasional removal of damaged, diseased and misplaced shoots in late autumn and winter. Cercidiphyllum japonicum tends to naturally form several main stems, however it may be trained to have a central leader if desired.

    After buying this as a present for my husband, after a little while the tree died on us and after only one quick e-mail we received a new plant with-in a few days. The new one is doing lovely and I can only say thank you for the quick and curtious staff.
