Katsura Tree

Interesting cracked bark? Check. Dainty heart shaped leaves? Check. Pendulous branching form weeping down towards the water? Check? Amazing fall color? Check. Is there anything this tree doesn't have? Nope. Then it's got to be Japanese. Cercidiphyllum japonicum. There are two really pretty specimens bordering the southwest corner of the Japanese garden at BBG and at least one more smaller one in the Japanese garden.
