Thursday Tree Love - Catalpa

The catalpa is a native American tree.

It blooms in June with large, beautiful flowers.
And, in July and August, this is what the flowers grow into.

And, if you live in the United States, send some good thoughts to Florida, in the path of a killer storm.

The power of nature is about to be shown to us again.

  1. Admittedly, I am a tree ignoramus, but I don't recall ever seeing one of these.

    1. They're native in the Eastern States but they seem to irrupt in patches. They have an interesting symbiotic relationship with a primary parasite. Some neighborhoods have many, some few.

    1. They grow into the pods you see hanging from the trees.

  6. I haven't heard of this tree. Then again I'm an illiterate when it comes to trees and plants and flowers. 😀
    Two of my friends live in Florida. One of them travelled to Atlanta, the other one staying put in Florida due to heavy traffic and they just had a baby a month ago. I am worried. Prayers.

  11. What a coincidence. I've been posting about this tree this week, too. I saw the long pods on it as I was walking through our city park on Saturday night. No wonder they also call it a bean tree.
