A seed source trial of royal paulownia (Paulownia tomentosa) and white-flowered paulownia (P. fortunei) was established in East Texas in 1987. Results showed that the two seed sources of white-flowered paulownia performed better in survival and in height and dbh growth than both seed sources of royal paulownia over the 6-yr period. No significant difference was found between the two seed sources within each species at the 5% level. The largest tree of white-flowered paulownia was 45 ft tall and 13.8 in. in diameter. The results suggest that white-flowered paulownia is a preferred species in climates similar to East Texas. South. J. Appl. For. 18(2): 65-67.
