Water Northern catalpaTenere Umido
We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water. Let's wet abundantly with about 2-3 buckets of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 2-3 weeks .

Cultivation 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.

Light Northern catalpaSole pieno
We suggest to position the The Northern catalpa in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day. 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 advise cultivating the The Northern catalpa outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures.

Pests Northern catalpa
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.

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