Lagerstroemia indica 'Tuskegee'

The dark rose flowers of Tuskegee bloom in late June and continue till fall. Bark is a mottled light gray and tan. Habit is upright and spreading, reaching around 17 feet in height.

Resistant to mildew. 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.
