A truly magnificent small tree this beautifully graceful specimen is a vertical grower that produces a series of arching and cascading branches with spring leaves emerging with a reddish purple cast that softens to blue-green in summer. Great fall color includes bright yellow with hints of orange and apricot. The tree grows vertically when young and matures to a more strongly weeping form with age. After the leaves fall, the show is not over, as the senescing foliage gives off a sweet scent that is picked up by different noses as cotton candy, burnt sugar, brown sugar, or cookies. The French call Katsura “arbre à caramel,” which we think is the most fitting tribute.
