Typically only grown in the south, now northern gardeners, to Zone 6, can enjoy Crapemyrtle! From the Barista Series, perk up the late summer garden with clusters of chocolate-mocha-hued buds and the cherry-red flowers of Lagerstroemia Cherry Mocha. The semi-glossy, burgundy foliage is tipped in red. Flowers are followed by rounded green seed pods. For much of the growing season, Lagerstroemia is a superb foliage shrub with its shorter, rounded habit.
Blooms on new wood for reliable flowering year after year. Our southern growers, without winter die back, can expect mature height to be taller.
A member of the Barista Collection, this Crape Myrtle blooms on new wood. All members in this collection are based on plant performance in Michigan. In Zone 6, they will die back to the ground in winter. In warmer zones without winter die back, mature height will be taller.
Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho
at this time.
Crape Myrtle thrives in full sun with moist, well-drained soil. Drought tolerant, once established. In Zone 6, they will die back to the ground in winter. In warmer zones only prune as necessary for visual pleasure in late winter or early spring. Remove suckers, tangled branches or irregular shapes. Not demanding about soil pH but they prefer neutral or slightly acidic soils. Avoid too much fertilizer. A slow-release fertilizer high in nitrogen is best.
