Catalpa Tree

The Catalpa tree was originally named the Catawba tree after the Catawba Native American word catawba. However, Giovanni Scopoli accidentally transcribed the word incorrectly when he wrote the first formal scientific description of the genus. The name could not be changed due to the rules of botanical naming.

The Catalpa Tree Has Stunning Leaves

It is a deciduous tree with large, heart-shaped leaves and striking flowers. The trees are usually chosen for the shade provided by their broad leaves. They are also chosen as an ornamental tree because of their showy, trumpet – shaped flowers that are typically white or yellow in color. They are generally about 40 to 60 feet in height. A sapling that is 10 years old can be as tall as 20 feet. It has very few pests and grows well in well-drained, moist soil such as the soil found on stream banks.

The tree is part of the Bignonia family, and there are approximately 12 different species. The most common of these are the Northern and Southern trees. The Northern tree grows best in zones four through eight, and the Southern tree grows best in zones six through nine.

The Catalpa Tree Is Stunning In Landscapes

The Catalpa Tree is a beautiful, classic tree with an intriguing and attractive shape. It features grand white and yellow flowers and large heart-shaped leaves. The tree offers a safe haven to birds, attracting them to its comfortable, shaded branches. The tree also displays long, attractive seed pods that advance from green to a rich brown with the change in seasons. The gorgeous flowers which burst forth from the tree's branches in the late spring and early summer attract hummingbirds with their sweet nectar. These lovely, low-maintenance trees will provide shelter and shade while offering beauty and majesty to any landscape.
