Russian bred and spawned by two American genera, Chilopsis and Catalpa, this stalwart, small deciduous tree debuts copious, upright exotic-looking floral clusters, each housing 15 to 40 light pink orchid-like blossoms. Ruffled margins and purple-lined yellowish throats embellish long blooming, one inch trumpet-shaped flowers to the delight of hummingbirds everywhere. With tapered tips and bases, soft shaggy hairs on the flipsides and a glabrous finish, narrow lengthy green leaves clothe fast growing branches, which are close-set near the ground, then extend outward, casting a wide airy silhouette.
Undemanding, water-thrifty and heat abiding, ‘Pink Dawn’ is equally at ease in modern planting schemes, cottage gardens or Mediterranean landscapes. Grows rapidly. Large Band.
Size: 15' 0" – 25' 0" high x 15' 0" – 25' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 6.
