Sioux Dark Pink Crapemyrtle
Lagerstroemia 'Sioux' is one of John Barbour's favorite crapemyrtles. The vividly colored flowers are intensely pleasurable from July to September. Exceptionally glossy deep green summer foliage can hardly be beat by any tree. When the cool autumn nights prevail, the foliage display gets even better with an impressively colorful flourish. Sioux Dark Pink Crapemyrtle is an excellent crapemyrtle for narrow spaces because its upright, narrow habit is maintained even in full bloom. Useful because the restrained proportions (20' tall by 12' wide) set it apart from the larger tree-sized crapemyrtle hybrids. Though restrained, it is vigorous and tough!
