Tuscarora Crape Myrtle

Regular price $25.00 Sale

Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Tuscarora'

Another good Japanese hybrid, Tuscarora has dark coral-pink flowers and mottled light-brown bark. It is most often used as a specimen tree.

The first blooms appear in early July and continue for about 70 days. Fall foliage is red-orange.                

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.
