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. 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 with winter die back to ground level. In warmer zones without winter die back, mature height will be taller.
One of the most floriferous varieties of the collection! Intense rosy pink flowers are produced on well-defined panicles in late summer to early fall. Before it comes into bloom, enjoy the dark green, shiny leaves on red stems. This is the first of the BARISTA® collection to flower here in Michigan.
