Catalpa

If you’re searching for trees that can handle almost anything Mother Nature throws at them, the Catalpa trees for sale through Cold Stream Farm are for you. Sometimes called Cigar trees, Caterpillar trees, and Indian Bean trees, Northern Catalpa (Catalpa speciosa) trees grow to be between 40 and 60 feet and prefer either full sun or partial shade.

What sets Northern Catalpa (Catalpa speciosa) trees apart from others is they can tolerate almost any soil conditions. They can grow in acidic soil, loamy soil, sandy soil, silty loam soil, well-drained soil, alkaline soil, and even wet and clay soils. They can also flourish in almost any moisture level and have been known to handle both flooding and very hot and dry conditions.

After spending the first seven years in the ground growing, Northern Catalpa (Catalpa speciosa) trees will start to produce large flowers in May and June that are extremely fragrant. They can also develop twisted trunks over the years. They have spear-shaped leaves that can get to be as big as one foot long, and they have seed pods on them as long as 20 inches. Those seed pods will need to be cleaned up periodically when you have Northern Catalpa trees on your property. You’ll also see hummingbirds, bees, and Catalpa sphinx moths populating the trees as they grow.
