Lagerstroemia 'Tonto'


Fuchsia-red, semi-dwarf/ grows 8' ht & sp 

*** LIMITED *** This is a semi-dwarf crape myrtle with arching branches that produce magenta flowers in mid-summer. Its dark green foliage turns red to reddish-purple in fall. Another feature of this tree is its bark which exfoliates with age. This crape myrtle is great as a specimen, along walkways, or used in masses for a bold effect. It is often planted as a street tree or in public parks. Thrives in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun.
