Is it true that some varieties of Paulownia are sterile? And if so, where are they sold?

Pollarded trees do not produce flowers, as these only form on mature wood. However this is a labour intensive solution. If you plant an invasive variety and stop pollarding you have gifted the neighbourhood with a problem.

There is a species listed as non invasive, although they produce seeds. Paulownia elongata, a fast growing tree with many various uses. Sources may rise and fall, but Amazon is currently selling it.
