There are few sights and smells more arresting in the garden than a Katsura or 'Toffee Apple' Tree in mid-autumn. Its heart-shaped green leaves turn shades of yellow, purple and red before falling to the ground and releasing a distinctive and intoxicating fragrance that’s similar to fairground candy floss or sweet toffee apple, hence its name; heavenly!
Peter experienced this last autumn while walking in a lovely parkland setting, where the scent truly filled the air, as the autumn colours were at their very best and richest, and now he is a big fan too.
Growing to around 5m in a decade, this tree can eventually reach 15m and will do well in a really sunny spot or light shade. For a breath-taking display of autumn colour, plant in moist, well drained soils, and making a perfect specimen tree, plant Katsura trees for years of pleasure.
