Crepe Myrtle, Sioux

Lagerstroemia indica 'Sioux'

Sioux Crepe Myrtle is an upright, multistemmed, large shrub or small tree with deep pink flowers through out the summer and foliage that turns red in fall. The bark on the trunk and older branches exfoliates to reveal a light grayish brown color. Soux Crepe Myrtle is one of the best for summer foliage and is a good choice for corners of buildings, as a single specimen, in a mixed border, or planted in a grouping.
