Pink Dawn Chitalpa is of the Bignoniaceae family. Environment-wise, the trees grow best in full sun to partial shade. The tree, like catalpa breeds and desert willows, have showy flowers and the tree can flower in spring, summer, or fall depending on your location. The tree prefers soil that is moist to dry. The expected height can be up to 35 feet but is typically around 25 feet. It is a tree that is adapted to grow in zones 6 through 9. This hybrid tree breed can live anywhere from 50 years to 150 years. The lawn litter from your Chitalpa isn't nearly as much as a Catalpa.

Pink Dawn Chitalpa is a cross between Catalpa bignonioides and Chilopsis linearis (desert willow) trees. It is a unique and excellent flowering tree that is perfect as an accent in your yard. The tree also fits in well in flower garden setting. For a possibly slightly taller tree, you can plant your Chitalpa in partial shade. For maximum blooming, plant the tree in full sun and with moderate soil moisture.
