An excellent, umbrella-shaped tree approx 4m tall and 3m wide with large, heart-shaped leaves which provide great shade. The Dwarf Catalpa (generally non-flowering) is grafted atop 1.8m trunks. Moderate growth rate. Benefits from annual winter pruning.
Perfect for courtyards and areas where ground space is limited, yet shade is needed.
Prefers full sun and well drained soil.
Take great care transplanting new season trees as the root system is very delicate. It will not be fully established until late November. Alternatively, you can leave the tree in its pot until then.
