    Have seen a couple of these trees growing around Gravedona, one in a garden the other amongst numerous trees in the foothill of the mountain. Hope the photo is good enough for identification.

    again, thanks

    Thanks for the identification. Can´t wait to see the flowers - have googled Paulownia - quite an amazing tree.

    It should flower OK in early spring, unless you get an unusually severe or late frost this winter, which could kill the flower buds.
