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 35' tall and wide. 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. Bloom will be on new wood.
