About the Katsura Tree

One of the most beautiful ornamental trees.  Often low-branching or multi-trunked, Katsura may have either a pyramidal or wide-spreading growth habit.  Small, heart shaped leaves are bronzy in the spring, blue-green in summer, and turn shades of apricot, yellow and purple in the fall.  The autumn leaves sometimes give off a “brown sugar” aroma
