The Katsura Japanese Maple is one of the brightest spring trees, with amazing bright yellow leaves edged in tones of coral red. The chartreuse summer leaves give way to vibrant tones of yellow and orange in fall, of an unusually bright and clear quality. This classic Japanese variety has all the refinement and elegance we expect from that culture, yet it fits wonderfully into any garden, of any style, as a large shrub or tree. Reaching 10 to 15 feet tall, it has a unique dense and bushy habit, with small leaves and a fast growth rate. We recommend this variety for a screen or barrier, and it can be trimmed in winter.

  • Spectacular yellow and coral red spring leaves
  • Chartreuse summer leaves turn
  • Glorious pastel oranges and yellows in fall
  • Rounded, bushy. large shrub for any garden
  • Suitable for screening and informal hedges

Grow the Katsura Japanese Maple in full sun in cooler zones, and in afternoon shade in warmer ones. It grows best in rich, moist, well-drained soil, and it should be watered regularly during hot and drier weather. It is hardy in zone 6, and with its broader leaves it is very suitable for hotter zones. It has no significant pests or diseases, and it can grow up to 12 inches a year when young, so you won’t wait long to see this plant in all its glory lighting up your garden.
