Discussion: The Manchurian Catalpa is one of the more ornate of the ornate Catalpa Tree family.  While all Catalpas are very vigorous with flowers and pods, the Manchurian Catalpa have a very unique leaf structure that lends itself to a longer duration of display.  From leave emergence to fall coloration, the leaves are a show stopper, often being saved by leaf collectors for their unique shape. All species in this genus are also commonly referred to as Catawba, and Catwaba Trees.
