Introducing the Paulownia elongata Empress Tree, also known as the Paulownia. This plant is a species of plant in the Paulowniaceae family and is used as a forestry tree in North America and China. Known to be the fastest growing hardwood tree, it can reach up to 15 or more feet in the first year. Commercial plantations normally use selected clones resulting from micropropagation, reaching a harvestable size in just five to seven years. The leaves are very large and pubescent, while the species can withstand a very wide range of environmental conditions, excluding altitude. This ornamental tree is commonly found in parks and gardens and is grown for its purple flowers and shade tolerance. Aside from aesthetics, the Paulownia is also a forestry tree producing strong yet light wood, making it suited for various purposes. It is also a great feedstock for biofuel production because of the large quantity of biomass produced annually. Order your very own Paulownia elongata Empress Tree and enjoy the numerous benefits it brings.
