Hopi Crape Myrtle
The Hopi Crape Myrtle, Lagerstroemia indica 'Hopi,' is one of the most winter hardy varieties of crape myrtles available!
This offering from the National Arboretum is slightly more compact than your standard crape myrtles, topping out at just over 8 feet tall.
This heavy bloomer will start displaying medium pink flowers in mid-summer and will continue on until frost. It is disease resistant and hardy in a variety of conditions. The Hopi Crape Myrtle is ideally suited for formal or informal design in the home landscape, street plantings and community plantings.
Hopi Crape Myrtle can be planted as a specimen or in groups, and looks attractive when underplanted with a ground cover. Crape myrtle leaves are oval and 1 to 2 inches long; they are bronze-colored when they first unfold in the spring and become yellow, orange or red before falling late in autumn.
Crape Myrtles are easy to grow, prefer full sun, and if they are used for hedges plant them 4 to 5 feet apart.
