If I were naming things, this would be called "Catalpa salicifolia", which I looked up; I found mention of a shrub of that name, "brought to this country from Mexico by J.R. Poinsett...", who was doing such things around 1825 and was of course not leaving behind photographs. "This country" was the US, and he is said to have distributed seeds to his friends. Unsuccessfully, it would seem. Until now. I'm SURE it's Catalpa, and you know I'm right about these things at least 5% of my guesses (not that I'm keeping count). I've found Catalpa bungei, which with slightly broader lanceolate leaves than these, which I don't think looks quite right. And Catalpa longissima, which also doesn't have me convinced. I can't tell if this is a small tree or just a young tree. There are a lot of blossoms on the ground, so perhaps it's been in bloom for a week or two, but all other Catalpa have finished blooming here now. Everything continued to bloom late this year, so maybe this should normally bloom mid-August. Leaves are sort-of opposite. Flowers are around 4.5-5cm across. There is only one tree like this at Thornton Park, across from the train station near Terminal and Main. Any ideas on what this is? Is it not even catalpa?
