The blooms of Country Red are described as 'blood red' Mildew resistant and 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. Bloom will be on new wood. *
