Katsura tree


Cercidiphyllum japonicum

Katsura tree

If you're looking for a beautiful tree with a soft texture, consider katsura. Its heart-shape leaves (a small version of redbud foliage) emerge bronzy red, mature to blue-green, then become apricot-yellow. It has a medium growth rate and good tolerance to a wide range of soil types (though it doesn't like drought). One of the best things about katsura is that it releases a caramel scent into the air as its leaves turn colors in autumn, making it the perfect place to have that last picnic of the season.
