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' 0"–25' 0" high x 15' 0"–25' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.

Customer Comment:

“In a busy business, you may get lulled into thinking it's all about orders, supplies, shipping, etc.  But it's not just about that.  It's also about the happiness your flowers brought to a little girl who has endured a great deal in her young life, and the happiness that plants bring to us all, young and old.”

~Tim in New Hampshire
