The Katsura tree of Japan is worthy of its RHS Award of Garden Merit. Graceful, heart shaped leaves cover this single to multi trunked tree, and add to its elegant appearance. New foliage in spring, emerges in tones of red. The mature blue green leaves eventually turn shades of pale yellow, orange and red, when it adds a new element to the garden- scent! Who wouldn't like a tree that smelled like cotton candy, or vanilla pudding, ?
