Hopi Crape Myrtle
Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Hopi'
Hopi, a semi-dwarf, Japanese hybrid crape myrtle with a low-spreading growth habit. Bears clear pink flowers in late June that can last for 100 days. Bark is a light gray-brown. Leaves turn orange-red in the Autumn. Very cold hardy.
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.
