The Weekend <i>(Part #1)</i> » Royal Paulownia (Scrophulariaceae Paulownia tomentosa)

Royal Paulownia (Scrophulariaceae Paulownia tomentosa)

By Eydie Wight

I noticed this tree and thought at first it was a hickory, but upon closer examination of one of the nuts, I found an easily opened shell containing a multitude of whispery seeds. I took a picture of it and later my friend Gary identified it as a “nuisance” import, a Royal Paulownia. Interesting.
