The Paulownia Tree Company
(Selling Paulownia trees since 1997)

Know the Facts!!!

Do not be fooled by lower-priced Paulownias.

If you are looking for a quality, fast-growing shade tree for decorative or ornamental use and want it to live longer than you, then the Kawakamii Paulownia is the tree for you!

We sell the Kawakamii (decorative tree) species of the Paulownia Family as well as the Elongata and Fortunei (forest tree). There have been many other sellers that have come and gone over the years that sell Paulownia also known as the Americana, Royal, or Empress Trees. These trees are generally grown from seeds and are not the same quality as our trees. Unfortunately, due to our success other sellers have tried to sell Americana, Royal or Empress species of the Paulownia as a tree for your home when these species are normally utilized for lumber production since they can get to 80 feet tall.

  • These easy to grow plants grow well in all ZONES of the country and an take temperatures from -15 degrees to +130 degrees.
  • They are valued for their handsome foliage and beautiful blossoms that have a gentle scent like Jasmine.
  • The Kawakamii Paulownia is a very quick-growing tree when young. It can grow 10-12 feet in its first year. It will ultimately reach a height of 35 to 40 feet.
  • This is an Ornamental as well as a Landscape Tree.
  • This tree likes to be on the dry side, only water when the soil is dry.
  • The huge leaves of this tree range from 5 to 12 inches long and 8 inches wide, but on rapidly-growing stems or young trees, they can reach a length of 2 or 3 feet and almost as wide. They have lobed edges and a velvety soft feel.
  • In the spring just before the leaves unfurl, 8" to 15" inch clusters of bright and fragrant flowers are produced. Their individual petals look like orchids.
  • Paulownia Trees are excellent shade trees, virtually pest-free, and will withstand the impure air of cities.
