Bignoniaceae Week:: x chitalpa tashkentensis from California: ×Chitalpa tashkentensis T. S. Elias & Wisura, Baileya 23:142. 1991
Intergeneric hybrid between Chilopsis linearis × Catalpa bignonioides
This interesting intergeneric hybrid was developed in Tashkent in early sixtees, much away from the home of two American parental species. 
While photographing this plant here in California, I thought it to be some species of Catalpa, but found leaves much narrower. The narrowness of leaves is attributed to Chilopsis linearis and flower structure to mainly Catalpa.
