Lagerstroemia indica 'Baton Rouge'

Baton Rouge is a bright, pinkish-red variety from the Dixie Series of miniature weeping crape myrtles. Blooms profusely from May through September. Patented by Greenleaf Nursery.

Note: Regardless of hardiness zone, all crape myrtles are subject to die-back at temps below 15 degrees. Probability of this happening is increased by pruning in fall or winter. Prune only in earliest spring. Bloom will be on new wood.

*Seldom Damaged by Deer*     Attracts: Butterflies, Hummingbirds & Birds.
