Catalpa (Catalpa speciosa). Catalpa trees can grow an average of 50' in height and can spread 50' as well. They can tolerate a wide range of weather conditions and prefer a sunny exposure with well drained, moist soil. Growth is rapid at first but slows down with age. The main ornamental feature is panicles of flowers produced in early summer. These are white with yellow and purple markings. The fruits are long pods that droop from the tree.
