Lagerstroemia indica 'Basham's Party Pink'

Basham's Party Pink produces outstanding pink blooms in July and August. Its bark is pale tan and brown. This is a taller crape myrtle that, under the right conditions, can reach as high as 35' in Height & 35' Spread (if it truly loves where it's been planted). Its habit is upright and spreading with a rounded crown.

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.  Blooms will be produced on current year's wood.
