Cercidiphyllum japonicum, commonly known as the katsura tree, is a deciduous tree native to Japan and China. It belongs to the Cercidiphyllaceae family. The tree is known for its beautiful heart-shaped leaves that emerge reddish-purple in spring, turn green in summer, and then transform into vibrant shades of yellow, orange, and pink in autumn, emitting a sweet fragrance reminiscent of burnt sugar or cotton candy. This scent is particularly pronounced when the leaves fall, making it a delightful addition to any garden or landscape. Katsura trees prefer moist, well-drained soil and partial shade, though they can tolerate a range of soil types and light conditions. They are relatively low-maintenance and are often grown for their ornamental value in parks and gardens. Hardy in zones 4-8.

Water the seeds. 5. Place the pots in an area with warm temperatures in full sun or part shade. The seeds will germinate in 10-20 days at about 70 degrees F. 6.
