The distinctive color of this tree all summer long makes it desirable for any garden. Supposedly it can get 30', but my reasonably mature specimen is 15'. It is densely branched with thin twigs. Fall color is orange yellow. My tree seems to always have a halo; I think it is my favorite. zone 6

Katsura is a striking plant. Bright orange in spring, it changes to a yellow fading to yellow green in the summer. The fall color is a reddish orange. Katsura forms a round headed tree to approximately 15’. (Wig)

PALMATUM, green. In the spring, the leaves are light yellow-orange with deeper orange margins. In summer, the leaves become deeper green. A small leaved cultivar excellent for bonsai. Each leaf has 5 lobes which taper to long points. A tight, densely branched but upright growing tree.
