This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Umbrella catalpa is a dense, rounded, globe form grafted high onto southern catalpa. (It is often sold as Catalpa bungei.) It does not bloom and remains small but requires shaping. Catalpas prefer moist, well-drained soils in full sun to partial shade. Umbrella catalpa is useful in restricted spaces such as formal gardens and narrow streets.
