Common Name Southern Catalpa Variety  
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Catalpa bignonioides
Description A medium size tree with large pale green leaves that are a favorite food of the catalpa sphinx moth larva. The larvae are very popular as fish bait and for this reason the tree is often planted around ponds and streams. This tree is also planted for its ornamental value because in early summer it is covered with outstandingly showy white blossoms and yellow centers. The long fruit pods make interesting ornaments on the tree in the fall.
