Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Muskogee'

Muskcogee, a Japanese hybrid, is one of the largest growing of the crape myrtles. 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.
