My name’s not Jack and this is not a beanstalk, but it’s grown faster than my teenage boy! It’s twice as big now since this photo was made in early June! Thanks for your help in identifying it.

    I would like to know too! I see you posted in June, but still have no reply. Try Steve Bender, aka, The Grumpy Gardener. He has a Facebook page, and answered a question I had for him within an hour. Good luck, and I will be looking because I too want to know what this giant-leaved plant is. He also has a gardening blog.http://grumpygardener.southernliving.com/grumpy_gardener/

    Either a Catalpa or Paulownia tree. Probably Catalpa. Extremely fast growing! They’re planted to provide shade in short term, but also considered by many to be a weed tree.
