    When I hear the words “giant” “volunteer” (or “fast”) I usually think of Paulownia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paulownia

    But the leaves don’t look fuzzy in your photo – are they?

    “Princess Tree”(Paulownia tomentosa) Makes purple flowers in spring and a mess after that. It is very invasive. See http://www.nps.gov/plants/alien/fact/pato1.htm

    I just checked the leaves again–they are not waxy, not really fuzzy, but more furry–reminded me of velvet. Looking at the link you sent, though,I believe you’re right. thanks much!!!
