Katsura trees are really special - their scent (of burnt toffee or candy floss) carries for long distances in the early autumn. There's a lovely specimen at Prince Charles' house Highgrove and a very mature tree at Westonbirt Arboretum which is probably 10 metres from the path and yet the scent carries with visitors stopping to work out which tree is sending out such a wonderful scented signal. No-one quite knows what the scent is for and most unusually, it's the leaves that are scented (it's spring flowers are insignificant). Wonderful trees to plant where you will notice the scent in the autumn.
