Paulownia tomentosa

Princess tree, empress tree, or foxglove-tree. “The genus, originally Pavlovnia but now usually spelled Paulownia, was named in honour of Queen Anna Pavlovna of The Netherlands (1795–1865), daughter of Tsar Paul I of Russia. It is also called ‘princess tree’ for the same reason.” You can find more information and photos where I found my quoted text, at:  TERRAIN.

Photos taken 17 November at Maple Glen Garden, Glenham, Southland, New Zealand. First three taken by Nigel, last two taken by me. All edited by me.

I went and checked the distant blaze of bright red colour. It was an azalea.
