Default Thoughts on the Royal Paulownia

I got this ad for this Royal Paulownia (paulownia tomatosa) from a
nursery. It clams to grow real fast and bloooms with lots n lots of
lavender blue blooms..............................

I have never heard of one and was wondering if you guys both near and
far had. If so, is this a tree to try or is it some rag that I
shouldn't bother with???

Thanks

No, I didn't see the other posts. They must have been off the server
by the time I got the headers.

What I was looking for was real experience with the tree. Not just
more info.

Todd,
surf to and bookmark this site:
http://groups.google.com/advanced_group_search
enter your tree name and see what others are saying about it. Google will
bring up the long recent string where the opinions ranged from almost as bad as
poison oak to that it produced the elixir of life! It depends on if the tree
goes 'natural' in your area. If that happens it can get to be a problem, the
sort of 'too much of a good thing' sort of problem.

I have seen Paulownias. It is not hardy north of Zone 6, but there was one in
Syracuse for many years. it is a handsome tree. However, in warmer climates it
is extremely weedy & invasive. You may wind up being hated by all your
neighbors. Also, always be wary of extremely fast growing trees. They usually
have weak wood and you are perpetually plagued by branches coming down in a
storm.

Default Thoughts on the Royal Paulownia

The very same plant has been the topic of recent discussion in this very
newsgroup.

The plant is a nasty weed tree and its bad points far outweigh its good
points. Don't get it unless you want to suffer years of grief dealing with
it. You've probably already seen it growing along the highway and in fields
and didn't know what the big leafed weedy tree was. Masses of fragrant
purple snapdragon flowers in the spring but the rest of the growing season
its extremely fast growing and aggressive with foul-smelling overly large
heart-shaped leaves. The dust like seed sprout into plants everywhere that
quickly crowd out all other plants.

Sorry Tennessee!
