The paulownia tree is more than just a breathtaking sight with its striking lavender flowers and large leaves. It is a tree with a rich history, amazing abilities, and endless uses. Here are some interesting facts about the paulownia that make it truly remarkable.

Anna Paulowna, Queen of the Netherlands and Grand Duchess of Russia

In honor of Anna Paulowna, the beloved Queen of the Netherlands and Grand Duchess of Russia, naturalist Philip Franz von Siebold brought back seeds of the beautiful kiri tree from Japan in 1823. The patronymic name "Paulowna" was chosen as the name for the new plant.

"Princess tree", "oxygen factory" or "weapon against global warming"

The paulownia is the fastest growing tree and can grow up to 3 to 5 meters in a year. Its large leaves also make a significant contribution to the global CO2 balance, absorbing about 30 tons of CO2 per year per hectare.

One of the best honey plants

The paulownia starts to bloom in its fourth year and can bloom for up to 40 days. Bees can collect up to 700 kg of quality medicinal honey per hectare, thanks to its high melliferousness. The flowers also have a delightful vanilla scent, and are even used in some restaurants to make desserts.

Medicinal and cosmetic tree

The paulownia has been used since ancient times in the East for various medicinal purposes, and recent scientific research has shown that paulownia extract can help reduce DNA damage and induce DNA repair processes in skin cells, making it an ingredient in some cosmetic products.

Phoenix tree - symbol of good luck and fertility

In Japan, the paulownia is known as the kiri tree, and legend has it that it is a Phoenix-like bird symbolizing eternal rebirth. The tree also does not require replanting, as it can regenerate from its roots after being cut.

Surfboard, ski, snowboard, violin, sauna, Japanese sabots, etc

The paulownia has high strength and light weight, making it a popular choice for various industries. It is used in shipbuilding, aircraft construction, and even in the making of surfboards, skis, snowboards, saunas, and musical instruments. It is also known for its insulating and sound-absorbing properties, making it a great choice for concert halls and recording studios.
The paulownia tree truly is a wonder of nature, with its fast growth, honey-producing, medicinal, and aesthetic properties, among others. It continues to captivate and inspire people around the world with its many uses and possibilities.
