The Purple Indian Bean (Catalpa x Erubescens 'Purpurea') is basically the purple leaved form of the Golden Indian Bean Tree, with which it contrasts well.  Its young leaves and shoots are a lush, attractive dark purple, almost black, gradually becoming dark green.  We recommend this tree is planted in a sunny and sheltered position.

A small tree, so expect a height of up to 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years.

Our Purple Indian Bean trees are supplied at a height of between 150 and 240 cm in a 7-20 litre container for year round planting.

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

Purple Indian Bean Tree Catalpa Erubescens Purpurea Options

We usually have two options to choose from and these are:

150-180 cm : As you may have guessed, they are 150-180cm tall and come in a 7-12 litre pot usually and are Half Standard
180-240 cm  : 180-240cm tall and come in 12-25 litre pots and are Half Standard 

Purple Indian Bean Tree Half Standard Option

This refers to how the tree has been pruned when it was younger. Roughly half of the tree will be the crown and the other half would be clear stem, in effect looking like a lollipop. This is only a rough description, sometimes the ratios can be different (before some engineer with a very accurate tape measure takes us to task over it)  


Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

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.

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.
