Paulownia fortunei: Dragon Tree, Fortunes Empress Tree, Sapphire Tree, Phoenix Tree

Paulownia fortunei is a fast-growing tree that is grown commercially for the production of hardwood timber. 

It is popular in its native China for reforestation, roadside planting and as an ornamental tree. It grows well in a wide variety of soil types, notably poor ones, but needs a lot of light and does not like a high water table.

Flowers before leafing out, flowers to 4", white spotted inside with purple, leaves to 10"; native to China and sometimes grown in California. 

Paulownia timber is a pale whitish coloured wood with a straight grain. Its characteristics of rot resistance and a very high ignition point ensures the timber's popularity in the world market. 

The wood is also important in China, Korea, and Japan for making the soundboards of stringed musical instruments such as the guqin, pipa, koto, and kayagum. 

Paulownia is extremely fast growing; up to 20 feet in one year when young.
