World's Fastest Growing Tree with Year-Round Appeal
The Royal Empress Tree (Paulownia elongata) is native to China, but has found a welcome home in the U.S. as the world’s fastest growing shade tree.
This miracle of nature can grow up to 15 feet in its first season, and at maturity reach heights of over 50 feet in less than five years!
The light scent between jasmine and gardenia is irresistible!
Your Royal Empress tree will announce the arrival of spring with a spectacular display of bell shaped flowers that burst into bloom on cascading clusters of 8-12” blossoms. Their colorful display of lavender-kissed, pink and white will infuse the air with the fragrant scent of jasmine.
When the majesty of spring has passed, your friends and family will be amazed throughout the summer by the Empress’ uniquely fuzzy leaves. These huge emerald green leaves can reach up to 3 feet across.
Nature's air purifier!
The Royal Empress tree can also filter toxins from the air at an amazing rate. In fact, your tree can capture more Carbon from the environment and convert it into pure, clean oxygen than almost any other tree in existence.
As if all this weren’t enough, during the winter months you will enjoy the adorable furry buds that cover your tree’s branches as they await the first signs of spring to welcome them into new life.
Easy to grow & hardy!
The Royal Empress tree is super hardy and tolerant of almost any soil type although it does best in well-drained soils. It prefers sun or partial shade and is pest & disease resistant.
