A Myrtle for the Central Region
The quintessential Southern flowering tree has expanded its hardiness potential. You're not limited to Zones 7 '– 9 to enjoy this gorgeous, pink, long-flowering tree. The Hopi Crape Myrtle has an increased cold tolerance level and will thrive up through Zone 6.
Soft and crinkly, the pink flowers of Hopi Crape Myrtle are massed in large clusters for an astonishing visual impact. With a striking resemblance to lilac flowers, Crape Myrtles are often referred to as the "lilacs of the south" because of their affinity for hot weather. This special Myrtle breaks the boundaries!
Exceptionally Long Blooming Season
You'll get a profuse amount of blooms for a full 4 months. Pink flowers burst like fireworks among rich green foliage from June through September. As if it doesn't want to let go of the summer season, this Crape Myrtle continues to provide cheerful, glowing color whereas neighboring plants have retired their blooms.
Because this plant produces flowers on new growth, you can clip the faded blossoms to encourage a second flush of flowers.
Plant It as a Tree or a Shrub
Plant a Hopi Crape Myrtle anywhere you want billowy pink splashes of color. This Myrtle is more compact than most varieties, so you won't have to worry about it taking over your landscape. It has a round, balanced shape with the height being proportionate to its width (approximately 10 feet by 10 feet).
Crape Myrtles in the Indian Tribe Series can reach up to 30 feet tall. Hopi Crape Myrtle is on the shorter end of the size spectrum. Because of its height, the U.S. National Arboretum classifies it as a shrub. Regardless of whether you call it a shrub or a small tree, its versatility is unquestionable.
Something to Love '– Year Round
In autumn, after the summer's floral display has ended, Hopi Crape Myrtle has another colorful surprise for you. The brilliant green leaves transition to an equally impressive display of vibrant fall colors. Your landscape will be illuminated by reddish-orange foliage.
True to its seemingly incessant nature to be impressive, the Hopi Crape Myrtle doesn't disappoint in the winter months either! Even as its incredible fall foliage drops to the ground, this tree remains gorgeous with light grayish-brown bark that adds texture and interesting color to your landscape.
This is One Resilient Tree
Don't let the soft-pink flowers fool you into thinking these plants are delicate -- Hopi Crape Myrtles aren't just beautiful '– they're tough!
Hopi Crape Myrtle was specifically bred to be resistant to disease. Crape Myrtles have earned the reputation of being susceptible to powdery mildew, a fungal disease, which is difficult to manage during hot Southern summers. Although this disease rarely kills Crape Myrtles, it noticeably detracts from their beauty because of its primary symptom -- an unsightly white powdery residue that coats the leaves, stems and buds.
Mature Hopi Crape Myrtles (at least two years old) are remarkably drought-tolerant; in fact, plants that get too much water tend to bloom less profusely. Natural rainfall typically sustains healthy growth.
Thanks to scientific breakthroughs in breeding the fabulous Hopi Crape Myrtle, you'll enjoy its beauty and vibrancy, without the worry of disease or drought.
