Re: Royal Paulownia

Jim, You know, I think you may be right.  I remember when just riding around
Baltimore that I observed  row-house gardens that would have a single
"coppiced" tree in the backyard.  Usually it was a mulberry or caltapa, or
so I thought.  I'll bet your Paulownia's would make a great coppice screen.
Go for it.  Onece upon a time we decided to let the Paulownia's grow, and
seedlings grew 10 ft. in one year here in Williamsburg, we pulled theme up,
but that is another story.  Verona
