An Outstanding Shade Tree in Just THREE YEARS!

Paulownia "Orienta" is a very fast growing ornamental tree. It can grow up to 15 feet in the first year....

The tree is perfect for the beautification of residential properties, and makes great borders around yards. The tree is deciduous, this means it drops it's leaves in Fall allowing sunlight to gardens and yards when it's most needed.

In the very early part of Spring, the trees produce a brilliant display of mauve-white blossom in racemes that look like masses of cascading orchids. Please note the trees do not generally produce flowers until year 3.

The blossoms last 2-4 weeks then the tree re-foliates with it's enormous lush and exotic leaves creating a luxuriant, cool Summer shade. The leaves can grow up to 36" in diameter in the first 2 years and look just like elephant ears.

"Orienta" will definitely enhance the beauty of any yard with flowers that will perfume a garden with a delicate fragrance. A definite paradise for birds and gardeners alike.

Site Selection

Paulownia "Orienta" prefers well drained sites with full sunlight. They will not tolerate wet land or shaded conditions.
