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

Special Attributes

A year round color factory, 'Natchez' is perhaps the most colorful, attractive and tallest growing of all Crape Myrtle trees. For up to 120 days of summer this magnificent tree produces large 12 to 16-inch long clusters of pure white flowers at the ends of long, arching branches that form a wide, umbrella-shape canopy. The large, dark green leaves provide a nice backdrop for the flowers and turn to colorful shades of yellow during the fall. But perhaps one of the most unique and outstanding characteristic is the cinnamon-red bark that provides captivating interest in the landscape during the winter months. What's more, Natchez is a totally mildew resistant Fauriei Hybrid.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 20 to 30 feet tall and 15 to 20 feet wide, the Natchez Crape Myrtle is one you'll plant as a tree and not a shrub. It is ideal for use as a specimen, in groupings, in rows to line a drive or property line, or near patios, decks and other outdoor living spaces to provide shade. Excellent for framing the corners of homes and other buildings.

Suggested Spacing:  15 feet apart for solid hedge; 25 feet or more apart for space between trees

Cultural Preferences
Natchez 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.
