Moderate-growing, large deciduous shrub or small tree to 15’ tall x 10-12’ wide, forming a rounded canopy with age. Crape Myrtle has long been a popular landscape favorite and is revered for its vibrant floral display and attractive multi-toned peeling bark. This showy, mildew-resistant variety features glossy deep-green foliage that emerges with an attractive bronzy-tinge, and is highlighted with a magnificent display of abundant, vivid, cherry-red flowers that appear in summer. Adding further appeal to this showy variety is its attractive peeling bark and brilliant orange-red fall foliage display. As a large shrub this variety is well-suited as a specimen, accent or background, and in tree form, makes a great courtyard or street tree. Low water needs once established. Full sun.
