Discover the Beauty and Fascinating History of Acer Katsura: The Tree with a Unique Fragrance - Web Garden Centre

Are you tired of boring and predictable trees in your garden? If you want to add a unique and exciting touch to your outdoor space, the Acer Katsura is the perfect choice. This deciduous tree is known for its vibrant colors, unusual scent, and fascinating cultural history.

Firstly, let's talk about the Acer Katsura's stunning foliage. Its heart-shaped leaves measure 5-10cm long and 4-9cm wide and turn a brilliant yellow, orange, and red in the fall. This makes it an excellent choice for adding some color to your garden, especially in the cooler months. And unlike some trees that lose their leaves in the winter, the Acer Katsura's bark provides an interesting visual texture all year round.

But what really sets the Acer Katsura apart is its unique scent. When the leaves are crushed, they release an aroma that has been compared to caramel, brown sugar, and even cotton candy. It's a smell that's sure to delight and surprise your guests, and make your garden stand out from the rest.

Not only is the Acer Katsura visually stunning and fragrant, but it's also relatively low maintenance. It can adapt to a variety of soil types and growing conditions, though it prefers moist, well-drained soil and full to partial sun. And with proper care, it can grow up to 12-15 meters tall and 10-12 meters wide, making it a great choice for those who want a medium-sized tree that won't take up too much space.

At Web Garden Centre, we offer a wide range of Acer Katsura trees to suit your needs. Our potted trees range in size from 2-3 liters to 20 liters, while our bare-root trees can grow up to 250-300cm tall. No matter which size you choose, we're confident that you'll love the Acer Katsura's unique scent, stunning foliage, and easy maintenance.

But the Acer Katsura is more than just a beautiful and fragrant tree. It also has a rich cultural history that makes it even more special. The tree is native to China and Japan and has been cultivated for over 1,000 years. In Japan, it is considered a sacred tree and is often planted near temples and shrines. It's a symbol of longevity, beauty, and strength, making it a great choice for anyone who wants to add some cultural significance to their garden.

This Acer tree offers so much more than just pretty leaves. Its unique scent, easy maintenance, and fascinating cultural history make it a must-have for any garden.
