I was watching Victory Garden today. It was a repeat but I caught a snip about a tree in the Japanese garden they were visiting that smells like cotton candy in the fall. That is my kind of tree! It’s called Cercidiphyllum japonicum or a Katsura tree.
Wayside Gardens has the weeping variety of the tree, which is even better. It’s $80 though. That’s normally more than I like to pay for a tree or any plant. But this would be so perfect next to my pond. I need to replace the peach tree that finally gave into the Cleveland winters this past year. I think this is the tree to do it with.
