Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week: We love Cercidiphyllum japonicum for it's cozy array of fall colors, and it's divinely scented leaves. Perhaps Japan’s largest shade tree, normally multi- trunked Katsura manifests a gracious symmetry; trained to a single trunk it provides a narrower, almost columnar shape. Its dappled shade is a cordial host for Corylopsis. Grows moderately to rapidly.
