This crapemyrtle will have attractive, semi-glossy, medium green foliage for you to enjoy all summer long. In late summer, the round habit explodes with flower buds that bubble up to the top of the shrub with enormous, triangular-shaped bright lilac purple flower clusters. Green seed pods follow the flowering performance.
Crapemyrtle have long been a popular flowering shrub in the south, and it's time that these beautiful flowering shrubs made a splash in the Northern market! The hybridizing team at Walters Gardens has worked hard toward selections that perform well in our West Michigan climate. All of the members of this collection bloom on new wood, so you can expect a great flowering performance year after year.
Note to southern growers: all measurements are based on plant performance in Michigan. In warmer zones without winter die back, mature height will be taller.
