Looks like a Royal Pauwlonia, Pauwlonia tomentosa. Tree is right. It will not be a potted plant for long. The juvenile plant's leaves are huge.

So, "thanrose" Lowes thinks this is a sycamore tree. You disagree???

Here is a photo album by a photographer, showing many views of sycamore trees and their leaves:

Note the leaf shapes vs. the leaf shape of the plant you have purchased.

I think it is pretty safe to say that you've got a Royal Paulownia there :) Definitely Doesn't resemble a Sycamore

I agree that it's not a sycamore, but it looks a little like the juvenile foliage of a liriodendron tulipifera (tulip tree).

What kind of tree?

Sorta late getting in on this posting. I think you will find it is a Sapphire Dragon (form of Royal Pauwlonia) It will grow up to 20 feet tall and have beautiful
blue blooms.
