I think every garden should have one! If you don't have a lot of room in your garden you could give Cercidiphyllum japonicum "Katsura" a go as they have the same dainty leaf cover as the Cersis (sadly no flowers though) and the leaves smell sweetly of burnt sugar/toffee in the autumn... just a thought! (it's another favourite of mine :D)

What a lovely selection Kate, thanks for sharing. I particularly like Cercidiphyllum japonicum and the scent off the leaves in Autumn. Some describe it as ‘honey like’ and others say it has more of a ’caramel’ or ‘brown sugar’ like smell. Either way an interesting scent none the less.

Favourite Fragrant Flowers & Foliage

Tip from Ornamental Tree Nurseries

In forum: My Favourite Plant

Often we choose trees and shrubs for our gardens that are aesthetically pleasing; spectacular foliage, rich flowers and remarkable architectural forms but we mustn’t over look the importance of fragrance.
