Quick Overview:

Sioux is a wonderful mid sized crape myrtle with excellent form & shape. If trimmed/pruned properly, it forms a very dense small tree. Its foliage is by far the darkest green of any crape myrtle we have ever seen!! This dark foliage is contrasted by masses of dark pink blooms that usually start in late June, and last well into August. This crape myrtle variety was a Georgia Gold Medal winner in 1996

Description

Will tolerate some drought and a little salt and will grow in dry soil. Suitable soil is well-drained/loamy, sandy or clay. The pH preference is an acidic to slightly alkaline (less than 6.8 to 7.7) soil. Sioux’ grows best in full sun with rich, moist soil but will tolerate less hospitable positions in the landscape just as well, once it becomes established.
