Special Attributes

Muskogee Crape Myrtle is year round color factory producing large clusters of light lavender flowers for up to 120 days during summer that are up to 16 inches long! The dark green glossy leaves provide a nice backdrop for the flowers and turn to colorful shades of red, orange, and yellow during the fall. Exfoliating bark adds even more interest. Totally mildew resistant Fauriei hybrid.



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing to 20-30 feet tall depending on pruning, and 15-20 feet or so wide, Muskogee Crape Myrtle is an ideal selection for smaller garden spaces, and containers. It can be grown as a shrub or lower branches can be removed to form a very attractive small tree, making it an excellent choice for use as a specimen or accent in sunny home foundation plantings or landscape borders. Also makes a very colorful hedge and is spectacular in groupings. Whether planted as a specimen or in groupings, this is one plant that is sure to stand out in the landscape!

Spacing:  15' for solid hedge; 25' for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Muskogee 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.
