Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Muskogee'

Muskcogee, a Japanese hybrid, is one of the largest growing of the crape myrtles, up to 35 feet tall, plus it offers a lovely light-lavender bloom and soft-colored, light gray-brown bark. Extremely resistant to powdery mildew. Fall foliage is a showy red and 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. *Seldom Damaged by Deer* Attracts: Butterflies, Hummingbirds & Birds. Photos from: U.S National Arboretum
