How can it be that we are heading into fall already? Spring and summer seem to always just fly by! Some of us look forward to it, while some of us dread it. Either way, it’s almost here. So let’s start thinking about your fall planting projects! Japanese Katsura (Cercidiphyllum japonicum) tree grows at a moderate to fast growth rate reaching about 50’ at maturity. Plant them in enriched, well drained soil with full sun to achieve its beautiful yellow to purple fall color. Probably thinking what’s so special about a Katsura than any other tree in the fall? Well, when the leaves (which are heart shaped by the way) stop making chlorophyll they emit a sweet scent of cotton candy as you walk by! Stop by and take a whiff, you won’t regret it!
