Desert rat

Paulownia 4BWD is a mutant superclone with as a
parental line Paulownia Fortunei. After some backcrossing the new trees were then planted in the Gobi Desert in the extremely hot climate zones. A few of these plants had a triple set of leaves instead of the normal double set of leaves. Because of the special growing conditions, the "Desert Rat
developed as a Paulownia that is drought and
heat resistant. Intensive daily watering should be given during the first 4-5 years of growth.
