Paulownia trees

My friend Betty Ann sent me this pic of the tada Paulwonia tree...evidently it has a heavenly smell like angels trumpets...or she said it did...
SiouxCity Sue(YEAHHHH SUE) sent me this link..and this is the kind of tree I have been seeing...evidently they can grow to 30 feet in a few years...imagine the surprise of this homeowner when the tree grows straight up 30 feet...TA DA...this is a smaller version of the big trees that I have been seeing...I do believe its a paulwonia...the trees I have been seeing have been limbed up...at least I think thats what it is...all the ones on the net are so full they dont look like these trees do...just bracts of flowers on the ends of the branches..
