We saw this tree — knocked down by a recent storm but in bloom — toward the very end of the Transco Trail in DeKorte Park. You can see it all over the Meadowlands these days. What is it?
Answer on the jump.
The NJMC's Lisa Cameron sez: "Paulownia tomentosa – Princess Tree, not native but widely naturalized due to wind and bird-borne seed." (Thanks, Lisa!)
