Cercidiphyllum japonicum ‘Herkenrode Dwarf’ Katsura

Description: Cercidiphyllum japonicum 'Herkenrode Dwarf' has a compact, branching habit with the leaves turning green in summer and yellow, orange & red in autumn before falling. As the leaves fall from the tree late in the year, they give off an aroma similar to burnt sugar or candy floss. An ideal choice of tree for autumn colour in smaller gardens.

Cercidiphyllum Growing Tips: Moist but well drained, acidic soils. Will tolerate some lime but will grow better and produce more vivid autumn colour in acid soil. Very hardy but vulnerable to late spring frosts as a young plant. Grows best in an area sheltered from strong winds.

Height and Spread (after 10 years): 1.8m x 1m
