    Product Description

    This is one of our exclusive cultivars from Dr. Keith Zary's brand new Northern Belle Hardy Crape Myrtle series. This series produces the most hardy crape myrtles yet—they don't just survive in northern zones, they put on a brilliant performance year after year. In midsummer, when other flowering shrubs are fading, this variety will burst into bloom with incredibly vivid, hot color. Butterflies adore it. It is a reliable rebloomer all the way up to zones 5 and 6—we got an excellent performance out of it in zone 6, even without winter protection. It stays at a good height for a border accent shrub. In cooler zones it'll die back to the ground and grow new each year, to about 3' tall. It will grow a little taller in warmer zones—still not the size of a tree, but we've seen this cultivar grow up to 5' tall in sunny California. Drought tolerant once established. Lagerstoemia indica '08–60369–48'
