Native to Japan, this adaptable tree grows to about 50' in cultivation. Though most are single trunked, many have multiple stems clothed with beautiful hanging, small rounded leaves, providing color in three seasons. In spring the leaves emerge a shimmery mass of ruby tints. They turn a teal green in summer and put on a gorgeous show of orange, red and yellow in the fall. Katsuras need some protection from sun and wind to show their best.

The wonderful "secret" of this large wide-spreading shade tree is that its heart-shaped leaves, reddish when young, turn yellow-orange in fall ; emit the delightful fragrance of caramel--an added touch of magic for fall. Sun/Med
