East Cobb, beginning to grow rapidly, What is this Plant??? From the pictures you see the leaves a very large, stem or trunk is spotted, and it dies back at frost.

    Do you get groups of smallish, open white flowers in the spring? And long beans in the Fall? It looks very much like a Catalpa.

    Leaves look like Paulownia (Empress Tree) which can produce a lovely spring show of purple flowers but is also very invasive.

    When comparing the shape and size of the leaves found on the internet, I think this is a Empress Tree.

    Definitely Paulownia tomentosa (Royal Paulownia, empress tree, princess tree, etc.)
