A rare, dwarf selection of Katsura tree, Cercidiphyllum japonicum 'Boyd's Dwarf' has a compact, branching habit and attractive yellow or golden-orange autumn colour.
As the leaves fall from the tree late in the year, they give off an aroma similar to burnt sugar or candy floss. An ideal choice of tree for autumn colour in smaller gardens where a traditional Cercidiphyllum might be to large!.
