Can anyone tell me the name of this tree please. It's in our local park and about 15/20 metres tall and has very large leaves. Picture was taken just a few days ago.




Paulownia tomentosa ?

Just what I was going to say Dgw, lucky you Daff I've never been lucky enough to see one in flower, except in pictures.

Thank you both very much. I've just looked the name up on you-tube and there is some very good information on how to grow them Simbad.

As said, Paulownia tomentosa or foxglove tree. I have 3 massive specimens at work and they always look stunning.

Hi Badfish. I would love to see a picture. The one we have in the park is not looking healthy and long for this world.
