Sioux Crape Myrtle
Over 100 days of blooms!
Everything about the Sioux Crape Myrtle tree is colorful – the leaves, the flowers, the bark. This tree will be a beacon in your landscape all year round.
The show starts in the spring with a flush of beautiful green leaves. This is quickly followed by dark pink flowers that bloom continuously through the hottest part of summer without batting an eye. They keep coming all the way through the fall, too. As the flowers are fading the leaves turn stunning shades of red and purple. Even when they drop they tree is beautiful. The sloughing bark peels from dark brown to beige giving the trunks a marbled look.
This is an exceptionally hardy sioux pink crape myrtle. It blooms farther north than many other crape myrtles. (It will even thrive under a blanket of ice and snow!) It is also heat tolerant and drought and disease resistant. It is tolerant of almost any soil type and flourishes where other flowering shrubs won’t.
Lagerstroemia sioux crape myrtle is a perfect size for any garden. They don’t get too big or stay too small. They fit under utility lines with no problem.
Being a crape myrtle, you can expect a long-lived shrub that will consistently give you a beautiful deep green leaves and clouds of flowers every year with no fuss. You can trim the branches in late fall or early winter before the flower buds set. ‘Sioux’ will reward you with over 100 days of blooms during the season.
