The blooms of Country Red are described as 'Blood Red' Mildew Resistant & one of the hardiest of all crape myrtles.

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 on new wood.
