Purple Catalpa


Purple Catalpa is an intriguing tree with large heart shaped velvety leaves that emerge nearly black-purple in the spring. A purple hue remains though the color does fade to a dark green by the end of the summer. Large clusters of fragrant orchid-like white flowers with yellow and purple spots bloom in mid-summer. Persistent bean-like seed pods follow. A fast grower, Purple Catalpa does best in full sun to light shade with well-drained soil.
