Imperial, princess or foxglove Tree, also called Paulownia, is a large, very hardy tree which is part of the Scrophulariaceae family.
It is native to northern China, Japan and Korea just like Ginkgo.

This majestic tree grows extremely quickly, its leaves are enormous during the first two years, they can measure up to 60 cm in length and 40 cm in width.
Its seeds are tiny, they are white and remain grouped in a brown pod before their dispersal by the wind.

Its flowers are magnificent, they look like large purple trumpets.
They emit a very characteristic odor reminiscent of violet.
Its flowers appear before the leaves at the very beginning of spring.
It lends itself well to bonsai pruning, such as Japanese maple or small leaved lime.

The ideal time to sow paulownia seeds is from March and April.
Its stratification is imperative before cultivation, either naturally by leaving them outside in the cold for a few weeks, or artificially by placing them in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 weeks.
Then, sow them in a tray of fine potting soil, trying to space them a maximum of 2 cm between each.
Then cover them with 1 to 2 millimeters of substrate then water gently with a sprayer.
Finally, place the culture in a greenhouse at a temperature of 25°C.

Its germination can take between 2 and 4 weeks depending on the temperature of the sowing.
