    Yes. You must be right. This large tree version was behind a row of cypress so we didn’t see it last year….the first year in our home. However, we did take a chain saw to about a dozen of its very large leaved relatives which we called jack and the bean stock plants because they seemed to grow 15 feet over night. We never saw them with flowers. This one will soon meet the same end. Thank you.

    I think it is the evil, paulownia tomentosa. Cut, burn, slash, destroy. Terribly invasive. Walter puts it nicely.
