Coral Crape Myrtle Tree
Great New Color in a Classic Garden Shrub!
It’s always great when a shrub that you know and love gets a new look. The Coral Crape Myrtle, Lagerstroemia indica 'Tuscarora', is a fresh look that will breathe new life into your garden.
Still a trusted and hardy garden staple, this new color of Crape Myrtle is decidedly unique. Crape myrtles are often seen in shades of purple, white, red and pink – ranging from hot pink to pale pink and lavender to deep red. This new color strikes a decidedly different note. It’s not red or pink. It is a striking salmon color that is definitely on point for garden color palettes right now.
The Tuscarora Crape Myrtle is a perfect blend of pink, orange and red, this coral color can be combined in some great combos for your landscape. For a modern look, try it with gray-leaved plants like agave or dusty miller. It really pops with yellows, like coreopsis, or lavenders and pale blues, like salvias and germander.
Of course this is a crape myrtle, so you can expect a long-lived shrub that consistently gives you a beautiful full head of deep green leaves and clouds of flowers every year with very little fuss.
Trim the branches in late fall or early winter before the flower buds set and you will be treated with a gorgeous show come summer. Tuscarora Crape Myrtle is resistant to most of the pests and diseases that plague older types of crape myrtles, too, which just adds to its usefulness.
Be bold and bring this striking color home today!
