ITEM DESCRIPTION:
With Sioux Crape Myrtles, your landscape will never be without color, especially in the summer when their pink flowers enter a continuous blooming cycle that lasts into the fall.  The older brown bark peels away to reveal bright beige bark underneath. Then, the older and younger bark intertwine on the trunk together to create a marbled look.
Easily grown in average, medium to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers part shade and consistently moist, acidic, sandy soils. Soils should not be allowed to dry out. Tolerates clay soils. Tolerates full shade. Promptly remove root suckers unless naturalized look is desired.  Foliage turns golden-yellow in the fall.
PLEASE CHECK YOUR LOCATION ON THE ZONE MAP. The zone determines where your shrub will best grow.
