Catalpa is a lovely small to medium sized, multi-branched and spreading tree with large, heart shaped leaves and creamy-white flowers (which are reminiscent of Orchids) in summer. These are followed by long bean-like seed pods.
Very hardy and fast growing. An excellent shade tree for most well-drained soil types.
Grows approx. 8m tall and 6m wide.
Take great care transplanting new season trees as the root system is very delicate will not be established until late November. Alternatively, you may leave the tree in it's pot until then.
