Acer palmatum 'Katsura' is a compact, deciduous shrub or small tree, mostly known for its beautiful foliage. Small 5-lobed leaves, resembling an open hand with outstretched fingers, are golden-orange with pink edges in spring, bright green in summer, and pastel yellow-orange in autumn. Katsura Japanese maple grows in vase-shaped form, but as it matures, it becomes more rounded. Small reddish flowers bloom in April. It grows well in moist, well-drained, slightly acidic soils. It prefers partial shade, but tolerates full sun very well. It’s very hardy but needs to be sheltered from harshest winds. Easy to care for, it requires minimal pruning. Lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure can cause leaf scorch. Acer palmatum 'Katsura' is grown mostly for its attractive foliage and interesting shape. Great as a specimen plant, but also in groups, especially, for beds and borders. Perfect for small gardens. Very suitable for growing in pots and containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
