|The Empress Dragon Tree or Paulownia Tree has huge leaves that can reach up to 3 feet in width!|
When you walk through a grove of these young trees, it feels like you are under water in a pond and you are looking up at the surface and it is covered with lily pads. For a while, when I did not know what they were properly called, I referred to them as "Lily Pad Trees".
These trees grow very fast and tall and the leaves are anywhere from 2 to 3 feet wide. If they stayed like they are when they are young, I would have one or two!
