This plant may not thrive in your area
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.
