Description

Available Autumn 2017 An unusual selection of Katsura tree, Cercidiphyllum japonicum 'Raspberry' has been selected for its autumn colour with the leaves mainly turning raspberry-red (depending on soil pH) before falling. The leaves give off the smell of burnt sugar or candy floss as they  dry out and fall.

Cercidiphyllum japonicum 'Raspberry' will grow to be a small tree or eventually medium sized in the long term and will usually have its best display of autumn colour if sheltered from strong winds.

Supplied Size:  3L pots (approx 3 years old, 50 - 60 cm tall)


  • Position: Sheltered area in full sun or light, dappled shade.
  • Soil: Moist but well drained, acidic soils. Will tolerate some lime but will grow better and produce more vivid autumn colour in acid soil.
  • Hardiness: Very hardy but vulnerable to late spring frosts as a young plant, although it usually recovers well. Grows best in an area sheltered from strong winds (this also allows the tree to keep its autumn colour for as long as possible).
  • Rate of Growth: Moderate.
  • Habit: Cercidiphyllum japonicum 'Raspberry' grows to be a small or eventually medium sized tree.
    • Height: up to 8 - 12 m (26 - 40 ft)
    • Spread: 6 - 8 m (20 - 26 ft)
