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.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

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.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
