Lagerstroemia indica 'Potomac'

Blooms borne by Potomac are a clear pink; they appear in late June and last approximately 90 days. Bark is a light gray-brown. Fall foliage is orangey brown. Very cold hardy. Drought tolerant.

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.
