An unusual but easily grown tree, Cercidiphyllum japonicum is known for its beautiful, heart-shaped leaves which turn fantastic shades of yellow, purple and red in autumn.

The leaves are bright green in spring / summer and grown from seed, the autumn colour varies from plant to plant, with the leaves of some turning brilliant orange or yellow and others turning glowing purple and red. As the leaves fall from the tree late in the year, they give off an aroma similar to burnt sugar or candy floss.

A spectacular garden tree with excellent autumn colour!
