Katsura Tree

Cercidiphyllum japonicum

A superior tree. It can be expected to perform very well in Keizer.


A broadleaf deciduous tree that grows to medium size.  The leaves are a soft green, but turn to a pastel yellow-pink in the fall. 


The Katsura Tree grows to 50 ft. tall, and 40 ft. wide. The leaves are broadly heart-shaped that are 2 to 4 inches long and wide. This tree prefers moderate conditions, not too dry. The Katsura tree will not grow well in very windy sites.
