Basic Facts

The Miami Crape Myrtle (botanical name: Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei ‘Miami’) is a small-to-medium flowering tree or shrub that produces vibrant clusters of pink/red flowers throughout the summer. Crape Myrtles are native to many regions of Asia and brought to North America in the 18th century.

The Miami variety grows upright and has a moderate-to-fast growth rate. This deciduous tree grows dark green leaves that turn the perfect autumn red/orange through the fall. This Crape Myrtle can grow between 8-15 feet tall and up to 12 feet wide.

Tree Care

The Miami Crape Myrtle thrives in multiple regions and hardiness zones due to its tolerance to drought and heat. This tolerance makes them an excellent option for the Southwestern states when you want flowers or color in your landscape. It can even handle poor soil but prefers a balanced pH level.

This pink Crape Myrtle loves full sun exposure and is easy to grow in well-drained soils. Once established, it develops a higher tolerance to drought conditions and can handle fewer watering sessions. Always water deeply to develop an optimum root structure. Late winter and early spring are the best times of the year to prune this Crape Myrtle.

Landscape Uses

This Crape Myrtle is often used in landscape designs as a focal point in a landscape, to add more color to your yard, or to create summer shade for your home or patio space. Its smaller size makes it possible to plant in narrow or tight spaces.

When the dark pink/red flowers bloom, you will even see butterflies, hummingbirds, and other nectar/pollen gatherers throughout your yard. For a unique and colorful hedge, plant the Miami Crape Myrtle in rows or groupings along the edge of your property.
