Tree 985

Tree 985 Catalpa bignonioides "aurea",
  Southern Catalpa, Indian Bean Tree, Golden Catalpa...

About 55 years old, and just over 9 Metres in height. A beautiful tree, that is from the south-eastern United States, here it needs to wait until it is quite warm before it greens up, and flowers which have a nice scent to them.
On the Riverview site there are  about 8 Catalpa bignonioides, but only one "aurea" and it was given a very  sunny, and prominent place to grow, near the corners of Clover Street, and Birch Crescent.
