Catalpa bignonioides
The catalpa
What tree drives mosquitoes away and attracts bees and butterflies? It's the catalpa. The leaves are heart-shaped and 20 cm wide. The catalpa has the largest leaves of any tree that grows in our climate. The scent of its crushed leaves drives away mosquitoes and flies. The catalpa is known for its trumpet-shaped flowers. They smell wonderful. The flowers bloom during the summer. They are white on the outside and speckled with purple and yellow inside. Perfect for bees and butterflies. After they bloom, the tree produces bean pods. Before the leaves fall in the autumn, they will turn yellow. We can't wait.
We deliver the catalpa as bare-root stock: just the bare branch and roots. The branch is freshly removed from the soil. This gives it additional strength, enabling it to branch out faster than trees in a nursery pot. Trees from bare-root stock adapt to their new environment more easily as well. They grow better and they're more economical.
We water the catalpa a lot after planting. This tree does not enjoy dry soil. During drier periods, give the plant extra water. The catalpa should be planted in full sun. They can also be planted in the garden or in a sturdy planter on a patio, roof terrace or balcony. It is essentially a natural garden parasol. You should pollard the tree once a year. Pollard means to remove the crown.

The Indian Bean Tree grows best planted in open ground. Make sure the root ball is well-moistened by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water before planting. Prepare a suitable hole in good, fertile garden soil. Loosen the soil with a fork and improve poor garden soil by mixing in some compost and granulated cow manure granules. Plant the root ball of the Indian Bean Tree at the correct depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Plant the root ball next to a sturdy tree pole and place a tree strap around the pole and trunk. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Provide plenty of water immediately after planting. Plant your tree in an area with complete sunshine.  .


The Indian Bean Tree is a strong tree that requires minimal maintenance. Provide it with extra water during dry periods since this tree hates dry soil. Pruning is well tolerated as long as it is not freezing. Through November to February, if its branches are too long, you can prune them along with any unwanted branches (except during frost periods). They can take some time to establish and may not always leaf immediately, it may be late June before you see any sign of a shoot emerging.


The Indian Bean Tree has the largest leaves of all trees growing in our climate. Its heart-shaped leaves are bright green to yellow and can grow up to 20 cm wide. In addition, it has lovely white flowers in the summer. The petals are beautifully speckled on the inside, just like a small orchid. If you prune it a lot, it can be kept as a bush.
