Lagerstromia indica 'Tuscarora' is not quite as large as many other crape myrtles. It has impressive dark coral-pink flowers and in the fall the foliage turns a nice red-orange.
Height: 15-20 ft
Spread: 5-8 ft
Growth Rate: Moderate to fast
Sun Exposure: Full sun to partial light shade
Soil Preference: Average to slightly moist & fertile - well drained

This cultivar was introduced in 1981, and is characterized by coral pink flowers. It is less susceptible to powdery mildew and leaf spot than most cultivars. Flowering begins in late June or early July, and will continue for 70 to 80 days. The trunk has mottled, light-brown bark that exfoliates increasingly as the tree ages.
