what kind of tree?

i have a tree in my back yard and i am trying to find out what kind of tree it is. It had leafs that look like two elephant ears put together, then the leafs fall off and pretty purple flowers grow and when they die and fall off it looks like snap pea pods grow. i dont think they are peas you can eat but they look like it. i want to know what kind of tree it is and if you could eat them....

  • it is a catalpha tree, at first it sounded like a goldenrain tree but those have yellow flowers.
    catalpha trees are not my favorite, you must live up north?
