USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 6a-9b  Find Your Zone

Special Attributes

'Acoma' is a "Fauriei Hybrid" Crape Myrtle of pristine beauty with a gentle weeping habit. Throughout the summer months, the lustrous, glossy, dark green leaves on weeping branches provide a crisp backdrop for the snowy white flowers, a cooling counterpoint to the boisterous heat of summer. Grow it as a large, mounding shrub with branches weeping to the ground, or remove lower branches to form a distictive small tree that serves as a fine focal point specimen in your landscape. This beauty deserves a spot in every garden where it will grow! 

No more problems with powdery mildew! 'Acoma' is one of the esteemed Fauriei Hybrid Crape Myrtles that is totally resistant to powdery mildew; an unsightly disease which shows up during summer as a white powdery substance covering the leaves on many other types of crape myrtle.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 6 to 10 feet tall and 6 to 10 feet or so wide with a weeping habit, Acoma Crape Myrtle is ideal for use as a specimen shrub or small tree, in groupings, or as a natural hedge in landscape borders. Where there is room it also serves as a nice specimen tree in home foundation plantings. To form a tree, simply remove lower branches to desired height. Whether planted as a specimen or in groupings, this is one plant that is sure to stand out in the landscape!

Spacing:  6 feet for solid hedge; 12 feet or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Acoma Crape Myrtle is very easy to grow. It is not picky about soil type provided the soil is well-drained. A moist but well-drained soil of average fertility is preferred. Full sun is preferred and results in heavier flower production. Light shade is tolerated but flowering will be diminished in more shade. Has shown excellent resistance to powdery mildew and is quite drought tolerant when established.
