Cercidiphyllum japonicum AGM

BaGaPhoMo, day 31

There are 2 good things about Cercidiphyllum japonicum AGM in autumn :

1. The leaves smell of burnt sugar – we’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve heard visitors exclaim “oooh, toffee apples…”

2. And their foliage, always delicate, turns the gentlest of autumn shades….

Plant it where it’ll be between you and the sun on autumn afternoons….
