Cercidipyllum japonicum 'Katsura'. My favourite all around tree. They always have something going on! When the leaves first emerge in spring they are burgundy in colour. As summer goes on, and new leaves keep emerging you have shades of burgundy and green all together on one tree. The foliage is heart shaped while the tree is shaped like a large droplet of water. The foliage almost twinkles in the light breeze of summer. But we're here to discuss fall colour, and that's why it's near the top! Here you see the golden brilliance. Some will turn shades of red as well. What really gets me, though, is the fragrance. The fallen leaves smell like burnt sugar. It's a natural fall fragrance that reminds me of autumns past. I just love these trees.
