Katsura Tree
Katsura Tree Cercidiphyllum japonicum 40-60' x 20-30'

One of the most prized of all ornamental trees and a common sight in the Japanese garden. Multi-trunked with a pyramidal to wide-spreading form. Beautiful drooping heart-shaped foliage emerges a glowing reddish-purple, becoming bluish-green during the summer and then a delightful apricot-yellow in fall. Leaves flutter in the breeze, shimmering and reflecting light. Fallen leaves exude the sweet fragrance of caramelized sugar. Shaggy bark.

Michael Dirr wrote that if he had to pick one favorite tree, it would be the katsura tree: “overwhelming in overall attractiveness.” It’s worth the drive to Asticou Azalea Garden on Mount Desert Island to see the mature specimens by the pond.

Prefers rich moist well-drained soil. Supplemental watering during the first couple of years will help the young tree get established. After that, it’ll grow fast. Native to eastern Asia. Z4. Maine Grown. (1-3' bare-root trees)
