You guys are good it took me 3 weeks to find out what kind of tree it is.
Catalpa bignonioides is the southern species, the northern is Catalpa speciosa there all most the same, Catalpa ovata from China has yellow flowers . guess I can send the worms to all of you that fish
. this tree is going to be great shade for some of my epies[/QUOTE
My tree never make's it to be a shade the worm's keep it trimmed as soon as it get's leaves.When I was a kid we lived by a huge pond.We had several of these tree's and the fisherman loved stopping and getting free bait.They would gather them in cricket boxes and freeze them for later use.It's amazing how they come back to life.
