Katsura Tree

Cercidiphyllum japonicum

 Customer Rating
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
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. Supplied in 9cm pot. Ultimate Height and spread: 10m (32ft).

Korean Fir

Abies koreana

  • New in 2014
  • Strikingly different ornamental tree

Of all the conifers, the Korean Fir tree is perhaps the most enchanting. Extraordinary violet-blue cones nestle upright among the dark green foliage from an early age, at a size of just 60cm (2ft). Developing during the summer months, the cones remain a constant fascination right through to late winter. The needles of Abies koreana are wider, more rounded and softer than our native spruces, giving a full conical appearance as the branches twirl around its central stem. This captivating evergreen makes a stunning specimen tree for providing plenty of year round interest. Although this RHS AGM variety can achieve a significant size with maturity, its slow growth habit ensures that it will remain a manageable size for many years. Supplied as a single stem bareroot 20/30cm. Ultimate height: Up to 10m (32’). Spread: 6m (19’). More info
