Growing & Selling Paulownia Trees Since 1997

Know the Facts!!!

Do not be fooled by lower-priced Paulownias.

If you are looking for a quality, fast-growing shade tree for decorative or ornamental use and want it to live longer than you, then the Kawakamii Paulownia is the tree for you!

We sell the Kawakamii (decorative tree) species of the Paulownia Family as well as the Elongata and Fortunei (forest tree). There have been many other sellers that have come and gone over the years that sell Paulownia also known as the Americana, Royal, or Empress Trees. These trees are generally grown from seeds and roots and are not the same quality as our trees that are grown from tissue culture. Unfortunately, due to our success other sellers have tried to sell lesser quality Americana, Royal or Empress species of the Paulownia as a tree for your home when these species are normally utilized for lumber production, due to the fact that they grow of be 80 feet tall.
