Lagerstroemia indica 'Victor'

Victor, a crape myrtle shrub that grows to about a 5' tall, is good for low hedges and mixed borders. It produces deep brick-red blooms over an 85-day period starting in early midseason. Leaves turn yellow in fall.

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.
