A beautiful plant, Cercidiphyllum japonicum 'Heronswood Globe' is an unusual dwarf selection of katsura tree with glorious creamy-yellow to pink 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!

  • Position: Sheltered area in full sun or light, dappled shade.
