Your photos are a bit hard to see. But by the outline of the first one, I think it is either Paulownia tomentosa or another of the Paulownia trees.

I would think twice in planting it though unless your yard is big. I bought 1 once from Home Depot in a gallon can. I planted it and next I looked it went from 1 foot to 10 feet. LOL My entire garden would have been obliterated. And my neighbors. I quick killed it for I thought that in another year or 2 I would have to pay big bucks to get it removed.

They are very invasive supposedly and a great quick source for lumber.

I admit, the first time I saw one in flower my thrill was huge.

Look if you agree

That sure looks like it. Wow fast grower I have a 2 acre yard so the only concern is I only want one of them and they produce so many seeds Thank you for your help I will definitely have to think about this

Horribly invasive. Don't even think twice about planting them. They are proliferating throughout the city here and up into the Appalachian foothills. They grow all the way to Maine. Many states list them as noxious while Connecticut bans them. They tend to sprout along the trail edges and cleared back roads on my property in the country where they are promptly removed.
