Product details

Cercidiphyllum japonicum, known as the Katsura Tree or the Candyfloss Tree, does really well on well drained fertile soils.

Its pretty foliage emerges a bronze / purple in the spring before hardening to a light green for the growing season. They then turn vivid yellow and pink for the autumn and at this point they can smell of burnt sugar, hence its ‘Candyfloss’ tag.

Sometimes mistaken for Cercis siliquastrum, the Judas Tree, Cercidiphyllum japonicum can reach over 15 metres which catches some out with small gardens.

New leaves can frost in the spring if caught late but they come back again.

Mature Height: 12-17m
