Lagerstroemia indica 'Miami'

Miami is a hybrid crape-myrtle tree that reaches about 25 feet in height. It has large clusters of dark-pink florets set off by exfoliating bark of a dark-chestnut brown. Highly mildew resistant. Lustrous green leaves turn orange in fall. 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. Photos: U.S. National Arboretum
