Catalpa bignonioides ‘Aurea’ – Southern Catalpa – 15-Gallon


A striking form of Southern Catalpa. Huge, bold acid-yellow, heart-shaped leaves explode from an open frame of branches creating one of the most dramatic foliage displays possible. The new leaves can have a slight blush of red that quickly gives way to a brilliant golden yellow. Once the foliage has fully opened it is surprisingly resistant to burning in full sun. Cold hardy to Zone 5. Catalpas are occasionally pollarded or coppiced in order to get even larger leaves.
