It is about 7 feet tall.
Leaves are large and are hairy and sticky, so are the stems.
It is a single stalk plant.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks!

Yup that looks like an empress tree. I am actually looking to buy seeds or saplings of this tree.

Most nurseries don't carry them due to them being so invasive (maybe banned?). Very fast growers and prolific seeders. Be wary of it, very wary.

Did anyone see this new variety of the empress tree offered by brighter blooms? They claim the tree is non-invasive. I actually emailed them and they guarantee the tree will never spread in anyway.

Since I really love the looks of the tree and what it does for the enviroment I wanted to order one. Has anyone here planted the new non-invasive ones?

The copyright symbol above would mean it's copyrighted material and can't be copied. I think they call that copyright infringement.

I think jenlee needs to mark this solved to close it.
