Paulownia tomentosa

£12.00

Paulownia tomentosa

This truly spectacular tree produces large, pale mauve “foxglove” flowers on naked branches in early spring, the large, dinner-plate-sized, soft furry leaves appearing later. If cut to the ground in spring, enormous leaves develop on the shoots sprouting from the soil, though at the expense of producing flowers.

Position: Sun or light soil
Soil: Any well drained soil
Rate of growth: Moderate
Flowering period: Spring, subject to late frosts
Hardiness: Hardy
Pot size: 2L
Eventual height and spread: Can reach an eventual height of 24-30ft
