The beautiful Katsura tree is slow growing and eventually reaches 8-10 metres tall with a crown spread of around 6 metres wide when mature.

The Katsura tree is dioecious the male flowers are reddish in colour, the female flowers are very decorative, purple in colour and appearing in small clusters before the leaves shoot in April.

The leaves of the Katsura tree are the real ‘stars of the show’, they are round to cordate in shape and appear in May, soft bronze in colour, later turning pale-green and bluish-green. In the autumn they turn a stunning yellow-orange to orange-red. And it doesn’t stop there. When the leaves finally drop to the ground, they fill the surrounding air with a caramel fragrance that smells just like freshly baked biscuits.
