Northern Catalpa Tree In Bloom - June 2023
There are big portions of our back lawn that currently look like this photo below - littered in white, tropical-looking blooms that are falling from a pair of mature Northern Catalpa trees that we inherited in our Zone 5B, Northern Illinois backyard:
Below is a look at the mid-yard Northern Catalpa tree that is fully-leaf'd out and full of white blooms:
Both Nat and I have grown to really like the Catalpa trees - and their large leaves, white blooms and layered limbs.
I've posted about the Catalpas before - here's one from Fall 2021. And from 2019 when I posted about it for the first time. And, I've been growing some seedlings in containers, too. More on these in a future post.
