The princess tree is a deciduous fast-growing tree in the Paulowniaceae family that is native to Eastern Asia. It is regarded as one among the world's fastest-growing trees. The leaves of this plant are big and velvety soft, similar to the leaves of a catalpa tree. The flowers on second-year wood are light purple pink, spectacular, and have a vanilla scent. Woody brown seed capsules appear next, which burst open in the fall to expose winged seeds. It may grow in a variety of soils, including those with poor fertility and high acidity, although it favours wet, deep, sandy-loam soil that drains well. While it can tolerate some moderate shadow, it likes to be in direct sunlight.
