Catalpa bignoides (Southern Catalpa Tree) apprx 30-40ft tall, bright green large heart shaped leaves; June-July summer blooms literally cover the tree and are a very attractive white with gold and purple accents. The leaves actually secrete a nectar that attracts the catalpa sphinx moth. In the south, just about every old "homeplace" has a catalpa tree. My grandparents have one, and it is called the "fish bait tree." The caterpillars are great fish bait! You can use fresh caterpillars or the caterpillars can be frozen to be used at a later date.

But I was fooled these trees have really taken off and they are looking good. I can't wait to get the worms on them so I can go fishing!
I will absolutely use this company for future tree/shrub orders. My husband is thrilled I ordered it for him.
