Paulownia Tomentosa

Paulownia tomentosa, also known as the Empress Tree or Foxglove Tree, is a fast-growing deciduous tree native to China. It is known for its large heart-shaped leaves and clusters of tubular, pale lavender flowers that bloom in the spring. The tree is valued for its rapid growth, which makes it popular for timber production and as an ornamental tree in landscaping. Paulownia tomentosa can grow up to 12 meters tall and is often planted for its shade, beauty, and environmental benefits such as erosion control and air purification.

If left unpruned, the foxglove tree will quickly grow to form an attractive tree. However, the biggest leaves result from pruning it to the ground each year in late winter. The result is strong, vigorous growth with huge leaves. As it flowers on wood grown the previous year, plants pruned each year won’t produce flowers.
