Paulownia & Joshua

July 24th, 2016

Every year I am amazed at the growth this Paulownia tomentosa (foxglove tree) which is growing in one of our nursery tunnel`s. Every year it is cut down to ground level only to emerge from fat buds in late march and then grow at an amazing rate of growth producing stems in excess of 15 feet with giant leaves to match.

To get some idea of scale here is photo of Joshua standing in amongst the foliage . For anyone  planting up a tropical type garden this plant is a must.
