    The trees growing along West 10th soon after 12th turns into 10th as you drive west, and which form a tunnel, and produce long stiff seed pods in the late summer are catalpa trees. The plant described here is a hybrid of a catalpa with a Chilopsis.

    What a fascinating account of plant breeding! And of a delightful rescue operation. Thank you.

    I always thought the Catalpa tree was the one that grows along the sidewalk on the northwest corner of 36th and Highbury where the little coloured cars sit. What are those trees with the long pods that develop in the late summer?
