The Miss Francis Crape Myrtle is a new breakthrough in color, producing dense clusters of flowers in the perfect lipstick red. The foliage is lustrous green, and remains healthy all summer, as this plant has been bred to resist disease. This tree grows a little less than 20 feet tall, or smaller if regularly pruned, so it is the ideal way to bring bright color into a smaller garden, on a tree that is easy to grow. Plant it on a lawn, or as a screen or informal hedge. Grow it as a backdrop to other flowering plants, and its vibrant coloring will really bring your garden alive. It blooms from June to August, so you will have color for months. Even when not blooming its beautiful leaves make it the perfect background plant, and in winter the handsome peeling bark, revealing many shades of cream, tan and brown, make it attractive even in that difficult season.

  • Brilliant bright-red flowers bloom all summer
  • Perfect size for a small specimen tree or shrub
  • Excellent resistance to powdery mildew
  • Dense foliage stays all summer, creating a dense screen
  • Attractive winter bark

Plant the Miss Frances Crape Myrtle in full sun, as even a little shade will reduce flowering. It thrives in any kind of soil, from sand to clay, and in both acidic and alkaline soils. It has some resistance to salt spray, so it grows well near the beach. It is tough enough to grow well in harsh urban areas, and it always look green and healthy, because it has been bred for disease resistance. It is also highly drought resistant, so once established it needs almost no care from you. It will bloom and bloom, shrugging off drought, poor soil, and the hot sun.
