Katsura Tree

Rich, Unique Fall Fragrance

Delicate, heart-shaped foliage keeps changing; leaves emerge bronze to reddish purple, turn blue-green in summer and yellow to apricot in fall. Big surprise comes last—sweet, spicy aroma that's compared to ginger cookies, caramel and cotton candy! Quickly grows 40-60 ft. in height, doing well even in clay soils. Zones 4-8.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
