Chitalpa ‘Pink Dawn’ is a small to medium sized ornamental tree a cross between the desert willow (Chilopsis linearis) and (catalpa bignoniodes). It is said to possess the best features of both parent species beautiful and tolerant of most of soil conditions and climates in the Southwestern United States. ‘Pink Dawn features abundant clusters of showy pale pink flowers. Each cluster contains anywhere from 15 to 30 or more flowers. The 1 inch long flowers have a funnel-shaped throat with purple guides that line the inside. They emerge to give orchid-like striping to the pink petals. Flowering begins in May in Southern California and continues well into late fall.
