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.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 15'–25' high x 15'–25' wide; hardy to zone 6.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
