Montana USDA Zone 4b - MT Master Gardener - I work in a large greenhouse and volunteer my time gardening at our local zoo.
Help me identify this #tree. I found at a zoo in #Montana. It has large leaves and really long bean-like things hanging from it. #plantid
Possibly a catalpa. Don't know if they grow that far north
@lesliecole49 @travelgirl25 , that's what it is also called an Indian bean tree
Thank you for your help @lesliecole49 @vic1218 I have never heard of or seen such a tree. What an interesting tree!
In the summer, many catalpa get these big ugly worms called catalpa worms, the are the absolute best blue gill bait
@lesliecole49 I googled the worms and I see why the fish would love them. Num num lol
The flowers are gorgeous! I have some pictures on My profile.
I always cut off all the beans, but @janelleabella is right. The flowers are gorgeous and smell so lovely!
@janelleabella I couldn't find your pics but I'll bet they are gorgeous. @jennlamaye I wish this tree was mine just for the flowers but it sounds like it would be a lot of work cutting or raking up pods.
I found them and @travelgirl25
