Tuskegee Crape Myrtle, Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei ‘Tuskegee,’ is a stunning mildew-resistant small tree that blooms vibrant dark pink flowers from spring to fall. When it comes to adding brilliant color during the summer months, few trees can match Crape Myrtle. We like to plant them in groups, where they can add plenty of drama. When planted in rows, they can create one of the most beautiful privacy hedges you can find. And, if you don’t have a fence, plant them along property borders to create a stunning natural fence line. These small ornamental trees are sure to attract all the right attention no matter how you plant them in your landscape.
Tuskegee Crape Myrtle prefers full sun exposure. They are not picky about soil, so they are suitable for a wide range of landscapes. And, once established, they will have little to moderate watering needs. This Lagerstroemia grows well in tight spaces, so they are ideal for urban gardens, too.
