Catalpa erubescens 'Purpurea' / Purple Indian Bean Tree
A medium-sized tree with an semi-open crown, which initially has a pyramidal shape that becomes egg-shaped to round, with maturity. In summer, the leaves turn dark green. The white, bell-shaped flowers, which are borne in upright panicles, are roughly 25-35cm tall. The long, legume-shaped fruits have a thickness of no more than 1cm, which remain on the tree throughout winter.
Irish-grown plants, 120-150cm tall, 7.5 litre pot.
Generally available in our Monkstown shop. Due to the size and weight of this plant, it can only be delivered in County Dublin.
