From Question and Answer Forums: What are others saying about this plant?
I am not a fan of Paulownia. A bit too bold for small spaces. Flowering Cherries like Prunus yedoensis grow fast and are very pretty in the spring.
Trying to locate where I can purchase P. fortunei P. tomentosa hybrids. I undestand they are best for what I need but cant find them.
