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).

Cherry 'Iford Flowering'

Prunus, Ornamental Cherry

 Customer Rating
A fantastic opportunity to plant this stunning, historic tree in your own garden! At the turn of the 19th century Harold Peto, architect and garden designer, found a small and completely pendulous pale shell pink flowering cherry on one of his plant collecting trips to the East. He named it the Iford Cherry and it was planted on the Iford terraces and trailed down the terrace banks and along the paths creating a truly magnificent sight by all accounts of the time. In 1999 the present owners of Iford Manor decided to propagate from the only surviving tree which by then had only one living branch which was no thicker than a pencil. Graft wood was taken and the tree died a few weeks later. Three trees were raised from the grafts and became the mother wood for the trees now for sale.

This delightful and historic tree is ideal for growing in a container or as a small tree in the garden. It flowers in early spring and has a marvellous bronze/red leaf colour during the Autumn. Decorative Tree Height to 1-1.5m. Flowers early April.
