This selection is the most floriferous of the current collection, with coral red buds opening to true pink flower clusters starting in late summer. Each stem holds a perfectly formed flower cluster. Brown stems are well branched and woody and hold rich dark green foliage. New growth at the tips are glossy deep red.
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, Inc. has worked hard toward selections that perform well in our West Michigan climate, overwintering for the last three years (including a zone 6 winter). All of the members of this collection bloom on new wood, so you can expect a great flowering performance year after year. This year, we are offering four new varieties. Look to the future for more to come! Note to southern growers: all measurements are based on plant performance in Michigan, where these crapemyrtle will die back to the ground during winter.
