One of if not the most popular Crape Myrtle trees of all time and one of our personal favorites of the taller cultivars, 'Tuscarora' produces abundant 6 to 7 inch long clusters of bright, watermelon-red flowers for up to 120 days during summer. Rich-green foliage throughout the season turns to vibrant shades of orange and red, extending the color show into fall. Because Tuscarora is a Fauriei Hybrid Crape Myrtle there will be no problems with powdery mildew, an unsightly disease which shows up during summer as a white powdery substance that covers the leaves on many other types of crape myrtle. After the leaves drop its the exfoliating bark in shades of grey, tan, brown and green provide interest in the winter garden. Get all the details below!
