Irrigation Northern catalpaTenere Umido
We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water. The Northern catalpa needs to be watered quite frequently, every 2-3 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 2-3 buckets of water .

Care Northern catalpa
These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Northern catalpa is medium in size and 13 m in height; in the summer it assumes a white colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The Northern catalpa develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree.

Temperatures Northern catalpaSole pieno
Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind.We suggest growing the The Northern catalpa outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.

Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Substrate Northern catalpa
We suggest a pretty rich, quite soft, but not too drained, growing substratum.
