Q.Katsura Tree (new)

Zone UK | sduggan added on October 21, 2016 | Answered

May I ask you, please, if you could advise what size I can expect a Katsura Tree (Cercidiphyllum japonicum) to grow to? I have just ordered one, and was advised that it is ideal for small or large gardens or for bonsai – I would like to keep it small but not bonsai size!

Many Thanks,

The size at maturity can be 40 to 60 feet tall and 20 to 50 feet spread. It takes 40-50 years or more to reach that size.

It is difficult to control the size of a tree, but there are some smaller varieties of Katsura Tree. The size will probably depend on the site and the variety you have. If many shrubs or other trees are planted nearby, it might end up smaller than if it was alone.
