Katsura Trees | Cercidiphyllum Trees

Katsura trees are truly special, with their distinctive scent of caramel/candy floss carrying for long distances in the early autumn. No-one quite knows what the scent is for and surprisingly, it's the leaves that are scented. The pretty heart shaped leaves provide yet more autumn interest, turning dazzling shades of orange and red.

The scent and colours combine to mate Katsura trees real show stoppers in autumn. Sometimes referred to as Candy Floss trees, we offer this unusual species as weeping, multi stem and mature trees.

There's a lovely specimen at Prince Charles' house Highgrove and a very mature Katsura 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.
