    Jim, you were too fast for me :). I agree that this does look like something in the Paulownina genus. A close up of the main trunk & branches will help in confirmation perhaps. For now the included link below with the P. tomentosa species images to compare. Click on the photos to enlarge. Best wishes!

    When I saw that Laura had passed on it (she ID’d the adjacent posting), I thought I might as well take a stab, because no one was going to be sure.

    I agree – but I’ve seen a lot of leaf border variation in paulownia. (Also, the flower stalk is unusually long for the species.)

    I thought the same….but strange leaves!

    It doesn’t exhibit the usual growth habit, but I’m thinking it could be paulownia. Perhaps misshapen by growing in a shady location?
