Answer: It sounds like Chilopsis linearis, also called Desert Catalpa. It's native to California and grows 15'-30' tall, 10'20' wide. From spring until fall it produces fragrant blossoms with crimped lobes, which look like small cattleya orchids. The white flowers of 'Hope' have pale yellow throats, which may make the flower clusters appear yellow. Hope this information is helpful.
