Anyone know what this is? The label says Celtis occidentalis (seed propagated)

It looks like a Celtis. But the foliage is not as I know it, for C. occidentalis. Overside the foliage is glossy, that is o. k. . But the foliage must more a oblong form.

We have a good set of buds on Paulownia tomentosa here at the moment and are hoping they come through the winter to give a nice display next spring.

Great show.

Paddy - Surely the buds will go through the winter in Eire will they not?  Here a pic from last week in the Annapolis Valley, a P. tomentosa from seed sown in autumn 2004 and shot from a third story window!  Bloomed a treat last year.

Good grief! That's some rate of growth!

John, we are very prone to heavy frosts here and they will do well to come through the winter. However, we live in hope

My Paulownia got too big, so I cut it down to ground level as I'd read they were sometimes grown like that...it didn't return  :'(

Stephen, they are regularly grown here in that style so as to produce extra large leaves, so just as a foliage plant.

And here as well, sometimes the winter does it for us.  Due to the very dry summer the leaves were not as big as usual.
