Common Name: 'Hot Pink Flowering Crepe Myrtle'

'Tuscarora' is a beautiful small deciduous tree with dark green foliage for spring and summer while turning to a brilliant dark red in autumn. During summer/autumn masses of pink flowers appear, formed in long tapered panicles covering the tree. The bark is also a feature as it ages with brown and greyish mottled smooth bark on the larger branches and trunk after about 3 years.

'Tuscarora' is very hardy, loving the heat. It requires full sun and prefers well drained soil but will tolerate most soil conditions. Minimal water is needed once established.

Can be trimmed, removing the spent flowers in winter but not essential as they usually frame beautifully by themselves.
