    A dependable explosion of bright, fiery-red blooms will appear every summer to brighten your landscape.

    Tonto is richly green leaved in summer, and dark maroon for fall color.
    Tonto crape myrtle won the Georgia Gold Medal (1996) and Mississippi Medallion (1999) for faithful, long lasting beauty and resilience in hot climates. Offers a powerful punch of color into a small space. For best flowering - plant crape myrtles in full sun.

    This is the perfect tree for adding glorious color to a small yard.

    Your new Tonto Crape Myrtle will arrive with an excellent root system.
    We practice due diligence pruning at Brighter Blooms Nursery to develop Crape Myrtle trees with vigorous root systems and well-branched heads. This added effort on our part ensures every customer is the recipient of an easy-to-grow Tonto Crape Myrtle that will quickly reward you with flowering beauty.

    I was absolutely delighted when my Tonto Crepe Myrtle tree arrived last fall. Talk about root system being strong. I could not have gotten a specimen like this at any local nursery. I am now waiting very patiently for the spring so I can watch it grow.
