In the fall of '07 I purchased a weeping Katsura Tree whip (about 3' long total) and planted it in a well-drained location. Part of it died back over the winter and despite spraying it with an anti-deer spray its leaves were browsed during the summer. During the second winter in which we had unseasonably warm mid-winter periods plus some very cold snaps, it died. I might try it again in a different location in my yard.

This is a fantastic weeping tree. It needs its space; note the pictures in the listing to see how wide it can reach. You won't be sorry for allowing it free rein, though. The sinuous branches and waterfalls of slim stems regaled in foliage will make you want one for yourself.

As with all katsura: don't let this plant dry out. Regular moisture through droughty periods will be rewarded with healthy vigorous growth and long life.
