Paulownia tomentosa
“Empress Tree”

Paulownia tomentosa "Empress Tree" Paulownia tomentosa “Empress Tree”

Rarely seen & a stunning choice for a street tree or accent, this remarkable evergreen (or ever-silver), long-lived Australian native is admired for its beautiful, weeping branches clothed in 2-4" silvery, blue-grey leaves. Slow growing to 15-20', it's bushy & full when young & takes on the ghostly weeping habit with age. Highly drought tolerant, with a low litter rate, it's found in dry, heavy clay in its native habitat but will look best in slightly fertile, well-draining soil with an occasional deep watering once established. Yellow, fragrant pom-pom flowers in Spring. Hardy to 15-20 degrees F.
