Catalpa
Catalpa bignoniodes

Catalpa, a typically medium sized tree, has a broad and open crown. It occurs throughout Georgia but was native originally only to the south-western part. The large leaves are somewhat heart shaped. Fruit of the tree is an elongated capsule, 6-18” long. The tree has been planted extensively as an ornamental and for the culture of “catalpa worms”, a large black caterpillar that is highly prized for fish bait.
