Genus Cercidiphyllum are large deciduous trees with kidney-shaped to ovate leaves, often bronze when young, and colouring well in the autumn.
Details Hand grafted and propagated at Lime Cross Nursery, Cercidiphyllum Japonicum ‘Red Fox’ is a medium-sized tree with multi-season appeal. Spring brings the emergence of soft, purple-red, heart-shaped leaves that mature through the seasons with subtle colour changes to a crisp wine red and then blue-green in summer. As autumn arrives, the leaves make a drastic change to a bright golden yellow with hints of pinkish orange. As an added autumn bonus, the foliage provides a delightfully sweet and spicy scent filling the air with an exotic perfume.
