The great northern catalpa tree is an excellent tree that is not used enough! Many do not know that this tree even exists. These are medium-size shade trees, that grow massive leaves and grow non-edible seed pods that add a special unique look to the tree. These are moderate to fast-growing and make PERFECT shade trees! This is a tree that demands your attention. White, showy flowers. Giant heart-shaped leaves. Dangling bean-like seed pods. Twisting trunk and branches. How could you not stop to take it in? And with all of these unique features, the northern catalpa is popular with kids as well. Back when I was a child myself, I spent countless hours climbing in my grandma's big catalpa tree! So many fun branches and we always played with the giant leaves and the long seed pods. This tree is a true American native.
