I love this tree at RHS Harlow Carr which has bright green leaves and lovely flowers. I have no idea what it is though.

there's southern and northern Catalpa. and they look very similar. here's what i found about the differences.
i can never distinguish between 2, except when in the southern US you'll see southern catalpa most likely.

here's some posts of Catalpa pics from UK - the northern hardy type. It looks similar to yours.

i love the purple spotting on yours, i think less spotting with almost white flower is more common.

According to a couple of web sites the catalpa at Harlow Carr is C. bignonioides.

Thanks! I'll see if RHS Harlow Carr can give me the species name.
