Northern Catalpa – Medium-Sized Deciduous Tree

Why Northern Catalpa (Catalpa Speciosa)?

One of the species of Catalpa that is native to the United States, Catalpa speciosa, may be found throughout the middle and western parts of the United States. The Northern Catalpa, Western Catalpa, catawba tree, tough Catalpa, cigar tree, and Bois chavanon are all common names for this tree. It is a medium-sized deciduous tree with a trunk (diameter of up to 1 meter) and a bark that, as it matures, turns from brown to gray to become stiff plates or ridges.

This one-of-a-kind and resilient tree is a quick grower found in parks and yards throughout the United States, despite the fact that it is not appropriate for every area.

Hummingbirds often nectar on the blooms, while the catalpa sphinx moth can only lay its eggs on this particular host plant. Additionally, it offers early summer bees a source of nourishment.

Not for the plant itself, but rather for a common parasite used as bait, the tree is often sought after by fishing enthusiasts. This benefit has also earned the tree the common name of bait or worm tree.

    The tree is just a straight stick. For a catalpa tree I was expecting some shape. Some limbs or bends. We will wait to see how it turns out. It has big roots to fill as I just had to move away from my first and favorite catalpa tree.
