Paulownia fortunei
Austral Splendour
TG121 blossom TG121 form in springTG121 form in summer

Created by TGG from a GuiZhou Province, China, line which has been greatly improved through induced change and selection, Austral Splendour has been supplied to a wide range of sites from Thailand to Arizona. Early growth is very rapid supported by enormous large dark green leaves. As the trunk develops it thickens and strengthens ensuring a robust tree more resilient to less than perfect conditions. The form is pyramid shaped becoming rounded with age with generally around 4 to 6m clear stem before the lower branches (although can also be a shorter bushier shape if desired, by pruning tips and encouraging lower limbs). Extraordinarily impressive in spring, with a complete covering of masses of honey suckle / jasmine scented, frilly, bright bluish-purple trumpet flowers with unique deep purple throats.
