Bold Fall Colors for Street or Shade
Why Katsura Trees?
The Katsura Tree is a gorgeous Asian shade tree that’s easy to grow and tolerant of most soil conditions and environments. From its high-quality autumnal colors to its effortless upkeep, the Katsura is the quintessential plant-and-forget shade tree.
Even better? It's pollution tolerant, with a shallow root system. That means it's perfect for lining streets since it filters the air and won't destroy sidewalks or streets with invasive, deep root systems.
And it gives off a subtle yet enticing aroma. Imagine walking in your yard in fall and noticing an alluring smell of caramelized sugar and cinnamon. As your non-invasive, pest and disease resistant tree grows, it will embody the warm feeling of autumn with its large, colorful leaves and seasonal scent.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: For your Katsura Tree, select an area with full to partial sun (4 to 8 hours of sunlight) and well-drained soil.
When you're ready to plant your tree, dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate your tree's root ball, place your tree and backfill the surrounding soil. We recommend mulching to conserve moisture, and watering to settle the roots and finish the planting process.
2. Watering: Ensure your water your Katsura Tree regularly, about once or twice weekly, or more in drought conditions. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 5 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water your tree.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
I've managed to take care of it well enough that it's on it's second year and looks great! I like it.
I came moist and well packaged. Lots of nice green leaves. Just too early. No way to delay shipment. No ship date request area. And I found as I kept it indoors, that I am rather allergic to it. So had to plant outside sooner than I wanted. See how it does. Looks very healthy. Will probably recover just fine.
Small, but quick to establish
Tree arrived as a couple of twigs with leaves, but doubled in height in less than two months. And that was in part sun on the edge of a heavily trees area.
Another Perfect Tree
The 6-7' tree arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. Healthy as can be. Can hardly wait for the 4 pack of roses to arrive later this week!
