One of our favorite trees! The deciduous foliage is always fresh looking, with blue tones and tints of red throughout the growing season. Beautiful spring growth is purple-bronze; in fall, expect clear yellow with orange and red tones. The Katsura leaves, hanging on short petioles, react to the slightest breeze like aspen leaves. The foliage has a wonderful, tantalizing fragrance like cookies baking. That spicy scent gives the Katsura the common name of Gingerbread Tree. A handsome, elegant tree, with a light branch and leaf pattern, the Katsura Tree often takes a multi-trunk form. Growing at a medium to fast rate, the Katsura's mature height can reach 60-100ft. Plant it in sun or light shade, in rich, deep, moist soil. Not drought tolerant, it requires supplemental water during hot dry periods. Protect it from hot, drying wind.
