x Chitalpa tashkentensis (Chitalpa)

Chitalpa


Fast-growing, x Chitalpa tashkentensis (Chitalpa) is a small to medium-sized, deciduous tree adorned with a low, rounded, umbrella or vase shaped canopy of narrow, pointed, medium green leaves, 6 in. long (15 cm). From midsummer until early fall, ravishing conical panicles of 15-40 trumpet-shaped, pink to white flowers, 1 in. across (2.5 cm), bloom dramatically at the branch tips. The pale grayish-white bark is an interesting silhouette in winter with its naked branches. Chitalpa is an intergeneric cross between Catalpa bignonioides and Chilopsis linearis. It is sterile and does not produce messy seed pods. Chitalpa is a lovely choice for a summer flowering tree in a small garden or patio.

  • Grows up to 20-35 ft. tall and wide (6-10 m). Adds 36 in. per year (90 cm).
  • Thrives in deep, moderately fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun or part shade. Blooms best in full sun. Although drought tolerant, it performs best with consistent and even moisture.
  • Keep an eye out for powdery mildew, verticillium wilt, root rot and leaf spots. Watch for aphids, mealybugs, scale and whiteflies.
  • No routine pruning necessary. Remove diseased, damaged, congested or crossing shoots.
  • Propagate by softwood cuttings.
