The attractive large, heart-shaped leaves are an attractive mid-green until the autumn, when they turn buttery yellow. Catalpa Bignonioides Nana forms a mophead, rounded crown, it will reach a full height of around 4 metres and spread of 3 metres in a period of about 25 years, yet can easily be maintained much smaller and more compact if required by pollarding and cutting back branches every few years.
