Catalpa Bungei AKA Chinese or Manchurian Catalpa 3/4 Standard 150cm Stem Girth 10/12: A deciduous tree native to China and Korea. It is a member of the Bignoniaceae family and is widely cultivated for its ornamental value. The tree is known for its unique and attractive features, making it a popular choice for landscaping and garden enthusiasts.

Catalpa Bungei typically grows up to 5 to 6m in height, with a rounded, spreading crown. It has a medium growth rate and can be easily pruned and shaped into various forms. The leaves of the Catalpa Bungei are large, heart-shaped, and glossy green in colour. They provide a lush and tropical appearance to the tree. In late spring or early summer, the Catalpa Bungei produces clusters of fragrant, trumpet-shaped pinky/white flowers that attract bees and butterflies. The flowers are followed by long, slender bean-like pods that contain numerous seeds.

One of the most distinctive features of the Catalpa Bungei is its bark. The bark is smooth and greyish-brown when young, but as the tree matures, it develops a unique pattern of furrowed, corky ridges. This adds an interesting texture to the tree, making it an eye-catching specimen in any landscape.

Catalpa Bungei is a versatile tree that can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, including clay and sandy soils. It prefers full sun to partial shade and is relatively drought-tolerant once established. It is also fairly resistant to pests and diseases, making it a low-maintenance choice for gardeners.

Due to its relatively small size and attractive appearance, Catalpa Bungei is often used as a focal point in garden beds, as a specimen tree in smaller yards, or as a border plant along driveways or pathways. It can also be grown in containers, making it a suitable choice for urban gardens and patios.
