Quick Overview:

Lagerstroemia ‘Tuskegee Pink’ the Tuskegee Pink Crepe Myrtle was first introduced in 1986. The flowers are dark pink and the typical average growth height is 15-20 feet in “standard” tree form.  It can make an outstanding multi-stemmed small tree in the landscape as well.  During spring to fall the flower color provides a spectacular accent to any landscape.

Description

Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Does well in loamy, clay soils with good drainage. Benefits from a slow release fertilizer. Overly fertile soils tend to produce lush foliage growth at the expense of flowering with somewhat increased susceptibility to winter injury, however. Water roots deeply, particularly in dry spells, but avoid wetting the foliage. Plant in a protected location and apply a good winter mulch.
