Chitalpa - Pink Dawn

The Pink Dawn Chitalpa is a cross between the desert willow and the catalpa. It's the best of both plants! Blooms in May or June until frost. Branches readily at the base and has ascending branches that form a dense, broad, oval crown. It's well suited to American southwest soil and climate; can withstand strong winds and is sterile. Attracts butterflies, bees and hummingbirds.
