*Heights/widths/clear stem is given as a very rough guideline and can have considerable variation based on species and supplier (each nursery experiences different growing conditions) It may even have been pruned before being sent out so we can only guarantee girth. Trees over 5.5m may include a delivery surcharge based on location and species.
Once a mature Catalpa Bignonioides Aurea Golden Indian Bean tree is over around 200cm/4 years old then girth is the best measure of value for money. For every girth measurement increment e.g. 6-8cm to 8-10cm (roughly 12-18months growth), the canopy will be wider, stronger, bushier and the root system larger as it has experienced 12-18 months growth. You can notice larger root systems with potted versions because the pot size increases with maturity. As a very general rule, each one cm girth measurement represents around 30cm growth but this doesn't apply to slow-growing trees.
Standard and Half Standard means lollipop shape. There is a more clear stem with a Standard and a Half Standard is usually smaller and more suited for pot growing or smaller spaces.
Mature Catalpa Bignonioides Aurea Golden Indian Bean Tree
An unusual tree, the Golden Indian Bean tree, Catalpa Bignonioides Aurea, is identifiable for its large heart-shaped, yellow leaves that in summer cast a delightful shade. Initially, the leaves are bronze-coloured, soon becoming their trademark yellow. Mid to late summer heralds the arrival of tall white flowers, generally followed by seed pods. We recommend this tree is planted in the middle of a lawn to fully appreciate its beauty but do recommend a sheltered position.
A small tree, therefore expect a height of around 4 metres after 10 years.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back.
