Catalpa szechuanica

Indian Bean

Description: Catalpa szechuanica is a deciduous, small tree that produces large, handsome, heart-shaped, fresh green leaves. Clusters of white flowers with purple-spotted centres on the ends of the growing shoots appear in June.

History: Originated from China.

Catalpa Growing Tips: Grow in a moist but well-drained, fertile soil in sun or part shade. Shelter from strong winds as these may shred the large leaves. Protect from late spring frosts when young. Hard prune every winter to increase leaf size.

Height and Spread (after 10 years): 5m x 5m
