Answer: If the flower clusters are purple, the tree is probably Paulownia tomentosa, the Empress tree. It's a fast-growing tree to 40' or 50' with a heavy trunk and nearly horizontal branches. The leaves are light green, heart shaped and 5"-12" long, 4"-7" wide. The tree is propagated by seeds and will bloom about seven years after being started from seed.
