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 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.
