Displays large, long lasting clusters of clear pink crepe-like flowers. Handsome foliage has bronzy cast in spring, bright green in summer, golden fall color. Mildew resistant.
|Botanical Name:||Lagerstroemia indica 'Seminole'|
|Special Feature:||Attracts Hummingbirds, Fall Color, Year-round Interest|
|Flower Attribute:||Showy Flowers|
|Design Ideas:||This lovely large Crape Myrtle is a popular, high-profile street tree that offers civic beauty without the litter and invasiveness of more commonly-used street trees. An equally good shade tree for city yards with a bonus of flowers and fall color. Its size makes it perfect for light shading around decks and patios, to dress up lawn-edge planters, or as a single stunning tree for the front yard. Frame a long driveway with them for a formal statement. Best of all, it is reasonably drought resistant.|
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.
The earliest crepe myrtle trees were grown by Michaux and sent from his nursery to man of our nation's most important early plantations such as Montechello and Mount Vernon.
