Dark Fuchsia Blooms – When you need a shrub that thrives in hot, sunny, dry locations and it is very drought-resistant, the Tonto Crape Myrtle is the perfect choice. If you live in colder regions, even in zone 5 and want to grow Crape Myrtles, this is definitely your best choice, being so hardy it will bloom every year as a small shrub in zones 5 and 6. It will flower continuously from early-summer to the first frost, with large clusters of bright-pink flowers of a rich and vibrant shade. The foliage of the Tonto Crape Myrtle will stay a healthy and a glossy deep green all summer long and never look tired and dusty like older varieties do.

• Best Crape Myrtle for colder areas
• Vibrant pink flowers will come every summer even if cut to the ground in winter
• Disease resistant and thrives in hot and sunny spots
• Continuous flowering summer and fall
• Small to medium shrub ideal for smaller gardens

In fall the leaves turn brilliant deep-red before falling to reveal beautiful mottled bark in shades of beige, taupe, cream and brown. If you thought you could never grow a Crape Myrtle because of your cold winters, then this great plant will prove you wrong.
