The Tightwad Red (R) Crape Myrtle PP11312 (Lagerstroemia indica 'Whit V') is a compact red crape myrtle.  When leaves emerge in the spring, they start out a deep wine color and transition to a dark green.  Clusters of light red blooms start appearing in June and continue on through September. 

It is a great choice for areas where space is limited, as it tops out at 4 feet tall and wide.  The Tightwad Red (R) Crape Myrtle is ideally suited for formal or informal design in the home landscape, street plantings and community plantings.

It can be planted as a specimen or in groups, and looks attractive when underplanted with a ground cover.  Crape Myrtle are easy to grow and if they are used for hedges, plant them 2 feet apart.
