Lagerstroemia 'Muskogee' is somebody's fantasy of a flowering tree. Marvelous long lasting blooms, through the heart of summer, dance atop a robust structure of rippling multi colored trunks. Sizzling fall color consummates the season. Muskogee Lavender Crapemyrtle transplants easily, establishes quickly, and is virtually indestructible. It is often used very effectively near brick veneers that incorporate random blues into the color mix.
