Searching Genus for Cercidiphyllum


CERCIDIPHYLLUM japonicum New Spring838
Katsura Tree15m  Zone: 3
A graceful, single or multi-trunked understory tree native to Japan with a dense, rounded habit. Bark is brown; shaggy and peeling on old trunks. Flowers in spring are insignificant. It is primarily grown for its beautiful shape and attractive foliage. Round-oval leaves resemble those of a redbud (Cercis = redbud genus and phyllon= Greek for leaf). Leaves emerge reddish-purple in spring, mature to medium-green with a slight bluish tinge in summer and turn striking shades of gold, orange and red in fall. Although not aromatic, the fallen autumn leaves have been varyingly described as smelling of cinnamon, burnt sugar or ripe apples.
Germination Instructions: Easy, warm germinator.
