Description

Bold acid-yellow foliage is the hallmark of this small deciduous tree. In mid-to-late spring huge heart-shaped leaves explode from an open frame of branches creating one of the most dramatic foliage displays possible. The new leaves can have a slight blush of red that quickly gives way to a brilliant golden yellow. Once the foliage has fully opened it is surprisingly resistant to burning in full sun. Although a fast grower in youth theĀ Gold Leaf Indian Bean Cigar tree will quickly slow as the tree matures. Catalpas are known for being extraordinarily tolerant of poor garden soils and once established can be quite drought tolerant.

Additional information

Germination

Indian Bean Tree seeds are relatively easy to germinate and grow. The dormancy within the seed is short and easily broken. The seeds first need to be soaked in water for 24 hours then drained and mixed with a little dry sand which helps greatly to separate them from each other and make sowing them much easier.
