Few people have probably heard of a phenomenon known rather morbidly as the widowmaker. Like so many tales, it originates from the dark and mysterious world of woods and forests. But it might just strike closer to home, especially if you have trees in your garden.
"Many thanks for the delivetry of our plant - a very nice specimen in perfect condition. We are so please with it, we shall be ordering another one today.." Thank you. M Brown
The Katsura Tree, makes a small to medium sized tree, attractive foliage that turns pale yellow and pink in the autumn, its great claim to fame however comes from the sweet scent in autumn that reminds one of burnt sugar.
This beautiful and unusual weeping form of the Katsura Tree has the lovely red tinted leaves of the Katsura tree in spring which slowly fades and turn green in summer. The strongly weeping branches of Cercidiphyllum japonicum Pendulum makes for a stunning site all year round.
This beautiful form of Cercidiphyllum has very dark purple to red leaf colour in summer followed by yellow, orange autumn colour (on more mature trees). Cercidiphyllum japonicum Rotfuchs is a very narrow form of upright habit, making a perfect small specimen tree.
