Anyone grow either Hearts of Gold Redbud or Catalpa, Aurea?

I am looking for a chartreuse foliaged tree for a shrub border. I should think either of these would be a good candidate. My question is if they maintain their chartreuse color throughout our hot summer, or do they revert to green in the heat?

I grow regular catalpa and think it's an interesting, easy care plant. From what I've read online, the golden catalpa maintains its color all summer. I think I would go for it, just because it's unusual. Plus if you have anyone in your family that likes to fish, they can use the catalpa worms in spring.
