Product Description

  • Flowers smell like lavender

Instant Shade or Privacy
Your Royal Empress Tree will grow to its full, mature size in less than 5 years. This gives you fast shade and instant flowers- great for large or small lots!

Hundreds of Fragrant Blooms
The lavender flowers burst in spring, giving you a sweet fragrance for weeks. This sweet smell will fill up your whole yard! You'll want to cut off a few blooms and place them around your house for a natural air freshener.

Unlike some other fast growers, the Royal Empress Tree (Paulownia) will not invade your entire yard with its root system. This tree has proven to be a great benefit to erosion control, reducing the loss of invaluable topsoil.

Saves You Money on Cooling and Heating
Did you know that the lack of mature shade trees around your home could add about 25% to your energy bills?

Mature trees protecting older homes normally reduce the energy bills by blocking the sun's heat and offering wind protection. Also referred to as The Royal Princess tree, it produces shade faster than any other tree. Then in the fall, it drops large leaves, letting through warm sunshine when you need it.

Royal Empress Trees here at Brighter Blooms Nursery are less invasive than other varieties and grown from tissue culture, which makes them stronger and healthier. Beware of other native Paulownia Trees that can overtake your whole yard! Here, you can be assured that your plant is strong and healthy, ready to thrive the first day you receive it.
