Natchez is a fast-growing Japanese crape myrtle with pure white flowers and smooth, dark cinnamon-brown, exfoliating bark. Can reach 35 feet in height. Blooms from late June through September. Glossy, dark-green leaves turn reddish 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.
