What is a catalpa tree?
Catalpa is a family of beautiful late-summer flowering trees mostly low and spreading in habit. Older trees bear panicles of foxglove like flowers . Do not plant in exposed areas as the large leaves will shred with the wind. The variety bignonioides, the Indian Bean tree is one of the best.

I haven't tried to grow a catalpa from seed. However, the way that catalpa seedlings grow abundantly near mature trees I have observed--both in eastern and western Massachusetts--suggest they grow easily. My theory is that snow plowing has a lot to do with getting the beans buried and off to the sides of roads or parking lots, where they manage to grow without interference from lawn mowers or other controlled landscaping.
The Kentucky General Assembly ruled on the issue of an official state tree for the first time in 1956. Overriding contention from advocates of the Indian cigar tree (catalpa tree) and the sycamore tree, the Kentucky General Assembly passed legislation adopting the tulip poplar as the state tree of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. And so it was. i hope this helped ya ^^
linden tree A Northern Catalpa tree has heart-shaped leaves. To read about this tree, and to see an image of the leaves, click on the Related Link. No, Acer pseudoplatanus (Sycamore Maple), Platanus spp. (American Sycamores) or Ficus sycamorus (Sycamore Fig) all have palmate leaves. Palmate leaves have lobes radiating from the base of the leaf, hand shaped rather than heart shaped. The Basswood tree is one variety that has heart shaped leaves.
