Cercidiphyllum japonicum
Katsuratree

Culture: Katsuratree is best moved as a young tree in early spring, into rich moist soils. If supplemental water is not provided during dry periods the trees begin to defoliate. An organic mulch is useful to keep the roots cool and moist.

No serious insect or disease problems occur on Katsuratree.

Usage: An excellent tree for residential properties or any other situation where a quality tree is desired. Katsuratree performs best in cool moist soils and requires supplemental moisture in midsummer to prevent stress and a loss of foliage. With its drought sensitivity, this species would not work well in parking lots or as a street tree in hot dry areas. The fall color may be lacking in some areas. Overall, it is a desirable shade tree for the discriminating connoisseur of plants.
