The Katsura tree (Cercidiphyllum japnicum) is a rare, fast-growing, spreading tree. It is distinguished by its dainty leaves, which are heart-shaped land range in colour from light yellow to a light grey to pink in autumn. These flowers are also lightly fragranted with a cooked sugar type aroma. Expect this tree to reach a final height of some 15m (50ft). We think this tree is best suited to a lime-free soil as this brings out the best colour.
Our Katsura trees are supplied at a height of between 1.25 to 1.50 metres in a 7 litre container, which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Katsura Trees

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
