Paulownia fortunei (Dragon Tree)
Paulownia fortunei (Dragon Tree) is a deciduous flowering tree native to China and Taiwan that grows quickly. This tree is used for both aesthetic purposes and wood. They're tall deciduous trees with enormous, heart-shaped leaves that measure 15–40 cm in diameter and are placed in opposing pairs on the stem. They're ideal feed for farm animals since they're strong in nitrogen and contain 18-20% protein. For us humans, they also make a tasty tea. Early spring blooms with a tubular purple corolla resembling a foxglove flower are produced on panicles 10–30 cm long. Because of its high nectar content, the Paulownia tree produces the majority of China's organic honey. They have a mild lavender smell and last for around 6-8 weeks.
