How To Care:
For best results, grow Paulownia tomentosa in full sun or dappled shade in damp, well-drained soil in a sheltered spot although it will grow well in most soils. Paulownia tomentosa, the foxglove or empress tree is a deciduous, fast-growing tree that is native to China. It is grown primarily for its massive leaves and panicles of foxglove-shaped blooms. If left unpruned, the foxglove tree can grow rapidly, creating an attractive tree. However, each year, in late winter, the biggest leaves come from pruning it down to the ground. With huge leaves the result is fast, vigorous growth. The plants pruned each year do not produce flowers as it flowers on wood grown the previous year.
