Lagerstroemia indica Velma's Royal Delight 

 Velma's Royal Delight is an upright, arching, producing large, drooping panicles of magenta florets. Extra-long bloom period. Excellent in mixed borders.

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.
