Arapaho Crape Myrtle
Covered in stunning panicles of red frilly flowers at the ends of the branches from early to late summer. It has attractive dark green deciduous foliage which emerges coppery-bronze in spring.
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 produced on current year's wood.
