This plant is loaded with blooms for about 3 weeks in June in Valdese, NC. It gives a great tropical look being covered with orchid-like blooms. It is very drought tolerant.

This tree grows well in the Northwest, (I live 30 minutes from Canada) and has beautiful bamboo like leaves. more reminiscient of desert willow than Catalpa. Lovely white orchid like blooms in July. And nice structure make this a worthy addition to any garden. Summer bloom goes nice with cannas, and palms creating a tropical effect that seems to be really hot in the northwest now.
