Description: A small to medium, bushy, rounded tree useful for tough sites. This tree is commonly referred to as Catalpa bungei, Nana Catalpa, Dwarf Catalpa, and Little Catalpa. A beautiful, distinctly mop-headed, small tree with large heart shaped golden leaves and panicles of white flowers with yellow and purple markings in midsummer. It is hardy and famously pollution tolerant but the splendid foliage is reduced to tatters in very windy situations. It will grow in a sheltered spot in cold Northern areas and is worth growing just for the foliage, but here it will only flower in hot summers. At maturity the Golden Catalpa 'Aurea' is noted for its low-hanging branches that spread from the tree's crown. In this open, irregular-rounded form, it increases in spread more than height. The lifespan of 90+ years is complimented with drought tolerance and adaptability packaged as a golden specimen for the landscape. A sunny exposure with well-drained soil is considered optimal for the Catalpa tree. It will also withstand poor soil and pollution.
