Golden Catalpa

The beautiful, spreading, deciduous golden catalpa is beloved for its large, heart-shaped yellow leaves, clusters of tubular flowers and long bean-like seed pods. It makes a striking feature element when planted alone, but can also fit well in a border. In ideal conditions - full sun and well-drained or moist soil - the golden catalpa grows to 40 feet tall and 40 feet wide.
