Intense red flowers will attract everyone’s attention. Bright, feathery blooms last from spring to fall.
The Arapaho Red Crape Myrtle – bred at the National Arboretum by some of America’s best horticulturists – was created especially to give you bright red blooms.
Remarkably, horticulturists around the country generally agree that the new Arapahoe is the most disease resistant crape myrtle available, making it an excellent selection that requires no messy spraying – just months of candy red blooms to delight and amaze.
Perfect in Any Setting
As a barrier or tree hedge, Arapahos are one of the faster growing red Crape Myrtles...shooting up to 3-5 ft. per year.
Easily adaptable to any landscape – including yours – these trees offer spectacular color in any soil. Thrives in Growing Zones 7-9.
Be sure to plant your Arapaho Crape Myrtle in full sun. If they get too much shade, the bright red color may fade.
Because your trees are young, they may arrive with deep pink or fuchsia blooms. If this happens, don't worry. Your Arapahos will display bright red blooms the next summer.
