Tuscarora Crape Myrtle

Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Tuscarora'

Tuscarora Crape Myrtle Trees produce a Coral-Pink flower. But these are no one trick pony. You'll get the flowers but as added bonuses you get great fall color and the peeling bark that Crape Myrtles are famous for. We think the Cinnamon colored bark is actually the real show stopper.

Dormancy Notice: This plant, like many others, enters dormancy or semi-dormancy in the late fall through early spring. *THIS PLANT IS NOT DEAD. It is completely healthy but upon receiving the plant, you may notice it exhibits fewer leaves, discoloration, or complete leaf drop. This is normal and essential to the plant's health. In fact, planting during dormancy promotes root growth, giving your plant a better start for spring, when new foliage will begin to grow.

Tuscarora Crape Myrtle Trees for Sale Online

The Tuscarora Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei 'Tuscarora') was developed in 1981 by the National Arboretum in Washington, D.C., through a program focused on creating a Crape Myrtle that was not susceptible to powdery mildew. A huge success, this cultivar is likely the most mildew-resistant Crape Myrtle on the market today. For other enhanced Crape Myrtles, read our blog Today's Crape Myrtles.

This classic southern tree produces soft, coral-pink flower blossoms in late spring that can last until the first frost. Accenting these blooms is rich green foliage that provides some shade below. In the fall, the leaves transform into orange, red, and yellow hues that fit perfectly with the autumn months. Once these leaves fall away, the light cinnamon-colored, smooth bark remains, giving the tree year-round interest.

Ideal for growing zones 6-9, this adaptable tree can tolerate zone 6 but may not grow as tall and may require extra care to protect it from harsh winters.

The Tuscarora Crepe Myrtle is resilient; it is deer-resistant, disease and pest-resistant, drought-tolerant. It is perfect for new gardeners looking to add some color to their gardens.

Only growing to 20 feet tall, the Tuscarora is not the largest Crape Myrtle out there and can be planted as a small tree. Since these deciduous trees don’t grow as tall, they are perfect for yards with limited planting space. They are also perfect as a privacy screen or large hedge when planted together in a line. This conspicuous tree is sure to shine whether you place it in a mixed garden, or as a specimen plant in the center of your yard.
