Descrizione Pianta

Altezza della pianta: 30-40cm
Medium-sized deciduous tree; it has a short, very branched stem and generally wide and rounded foliage; the bark is green-brown, dark, wrinkled; it grows quite rapidly, and is very long-lived, very old specimens can reach 8-12 m in height. It has very large leaves, 20-25 cm in diameter, light green on the upper side, lighter and slightly pubescent on the lower side, heart-shaped, wrinkled, with a long petiole, very similar to that of Paulownia, with which it is often confused. In late spring it produces numerous erect inflorescences, composed of bell-shaped flowers, white, with orange dots and red streaks, intensely scented; at the end of summer it produces long pod-like fruits, containing numerous seeds, which remain on the plant throughout autumn and most of winter.

Pedoclimatic needs

It prefers deep, rich and well-drained soil; it loves bright and sunny positions, but develops without problems even in partial or complete shade; Catalpas are not afraid of the cold and generally tolerate even the harshest or windiest winters well.
