Quick Overview:

Miss Frances is a new deep red flowered crape myrtle. It produces lustrous green leaves with dark red flowers for an extended flowering season from late June into August. Miss Frances displays a round, spreading growth habit.

Description

Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils 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. Water roots deeply, particularly in dry spells, but avoid wetting the foliage.
