Semi-Dwarf Crape Myrtle that's Easy to Grow!

  • Year-Round Interest
  • Easy Care
  • Dramatic Fall Color

The Zuni Crape Myrtle, Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Zuni', is a semi-dwarf, multi-stemmed shrub. The young foliage has a shiny red edge and becomes deep green and forms a nice rounded top. The large, rich dark lavender colored flowers are displayed from mid-July through the month of September!

The Zuni Crape Myrtle is mildew resistant, has improved hardiness, and handsome peeling bark. The leaves will change to a dramatic orange to red-maroon color in the fall, giving extended beauty into the autumn months.

The Zuni 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 under planted with a groundcover.

Crape myrtles should be grown in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun, and in open areas where air circulation is good. The Zuni Crape Myrtle is an easy to grow shrub, and it can also be used for hedges; plant them 3 to 4 feet apart. It is best to follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Order one today!
