An intergeneric cross between Catalpa bignonioides and Chilopsis linearis, x Chitalpa tashkentensis 'Pink Dawn' forms a small multi-trunked tree with a broad canopy. It is fairly fast-growing and does very well in our Northwest weather. We grow it on a south-facing hillside that can be dry in the summer where it seems quite at home. Perhaps it is the heritage from the Chilopsis, a dweller of the arid southwest, that gives this tree its drought tolerance. The narrow, mid-green foliage is lance-shaped not disimilar to that of the Chilopsis. The flowers are large and showy.
