Close up. It is amazingly colourful. It looks white from the distance.

Are you sure you can't grow Catalpa Lori? they are pretty hardy.

I looked into them about five years ago now... I think those that do survive this climate are usually grafted onto standards and rarely bloom. But you are right it has been five years and perhaps I could find more info now...but I prefer to grow something that will live willingly in my garden rather than feeling responsible for the survival of a lovely plant that won't.
