The Katsura Tree – Cercidiphyllum japonica

(150 seeds)

$4.15

Attractive foliage turns a gorgeous red in autumn.

The Katsura tree makes an interesting bonsai. Its leaves turn a deep red in autumn and emit a wonderful, sweet, candy smell. The branches are generally evenly spaced, narrow and make for a good formal or informal upright styled tree.

In the Garden

A tree with outstanding ornamental qualities the Katsura Tree tends to grow in a pyramid form when young and then spreads out with age. Branches will tend to droop with age and it does not have an overly dense canopy which makes it great as a shade tree around the home. It has quite a shallow root system with some roots sitting up to 15cm above ground which makes it unsuitable for areas requiring frequent mowing.

Propagation

A very tough tree, the Katsura does need to be placed in a moist situation when young, but once established it is quite drought tolerant. Native to China and Japan, the tree will grow in all but the most northern tropics of Australia and will tolerate most soil types.
