Paulownia “Foxglove tree”

August 13th, 2013

Dillion 003This is Dillion looking through the leaves of a Paulownia tomentosa tree.This tree is growing in the ground inside a tunnel ,at Avery`s Plant Centre  Taunton and every year we cut down to ground level.

After March it starts to grow again and within the space of a few short months it makes this massive amount of growth,with huge leaves and shoots 12ft in height ,which threating to grow through the roof of the tunnel.

This is a really good plant to grow in the garden,especially if trying to create a jungle feel to it.Best in a shelterd position and I would suggested a mulch in the winter to give protection to the roots.
