"Indian Bean Tree"
Medium. Wide spreading well branched domed crowns. Late breaking large heart-shaped leaves, fresh green. Not for exposed sites, but an excellent flowering specimen tree, (July- August). Unusual long ‘runner beans’ produced in autumn. Best on well-drained soils. One of the most beautiful trees that you can plant when seen in full flower. Needs plenty of space. Also specify Catalpa bignonioides 'Aurea' for a golden spring and yellow-green summer foliage.
