Vibrant Pink Blooms From Summer to Fall

With cold hardy Sioux Crape Myrtles your landscape will never have to be without color, especially in the summer when their dark pink flowers enter a continuous blooming cycle that lasts into the fall.

By being cold tolerant to growing zone 6 and with the ability to thrive under heavy layers of ice and snow, the Sioux Crape Myrtle brings its pink blooms farther north than other crape myrtle varieties. 

You will be able to enjoy fragrant pink blooms for months. The flowers bloom in large clusters and have an attractive color that your family and neighbors will enjoy.

Sioux Crape Myrtles have very dark green leaves that create a radiant show of contrasting colors.  Then in the fall the leaves turn unique shades of purple and red. They glow in the landscape with vivid hues that the members of your neighborhood have most likely never seen before.

Everything about the Sioux Crape Myrtle is colorful, even the bark. The older brown bark peels away to reveal bright beige bark underneath. The older and younger barks intertwine on the trunk together to create a marbled look.

Sioux Crape Myrtles aren’t too big, or too small. They’re just right, by only reaching heights of 13 to 20 feet. They will fit perfectly in your landscape even if your space is limited, even under utility lines.

Their narrow vase shaped growth habit combined with their multiple trunks gives them an ornamental appeal as an accent tree or the focal point in the landscape. If planted in rows their dense foliage will fit in to create a living privacy screen, perfect from blocking your neighbor’s view of your home.

Sioux Crape Myrtles are one of the toughest varieties available. Along with the ability to survive freezing temperatures they are also drought and heat tolerant. They also have a high level of resistance against pests and diseases.

Not even poor soil can stop the Sioux Crape Myrtle from flourishing with tons of color and over 100 days of blooms.

My new crape myrtle
I received the largest version of this tree about three weeks ago. It came well planted and protected, was as advertised in size and has some new shoots on it. Overall I am very pleased with it. I look forward to watching it grow and bloom in the future. In my garden it is part of a semi-ring of four crape myrtles of different colors and sizes.

Love Crepe Myrtles
Can't say much on the growth of the tree since I just received it safe and sound a couple weeks ago and have planted it. I have three other crepe myrtles, so I'm excited to watch this one grow also.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Sioux Crape Myrtle

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Sioux Crape Myrtle.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Sioux Crape Myrtle gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Sioux Crape Myrtle again after the transplant is complete.

Susan S on Mar 23, 2017
I chose this because I am looking for a pretty way to obtain privacy from my neighbor in the adjacent yard. Fencing is too expensive to be an option right now so I have been researching landscaping options. Since my yard lacks flowers in the Fall, I thought these trees which bloom Summer-Fall would be perfect. Fingers crossed!

It is a good tree to have near streets and sidewalks. I have a small plot of land between the sidewalk and the street that I am going to put the crape myrtles.

I recently had a large tree removed from in front of my house. It was to big for the space and intrusive but it did block alot of the sun. I thought this myrtle would be perfect to hold back some of the sun.
John R on Jul 12, 2016
Drought resistant with a bouquet of color.

Wanted pink velour. Live in zone 6 and website says 7 is lowest. Want a crape myrtle about 10 ft. Can the Sioux be maintained at that height?
Pat M on May 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can keep it pruned to your desired height.
When is the best time to plant? I live in zone 6 and am not sure if summer is a good time to plant.
Sharon W on Jul 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not familiar with the climate in zone 6. I live in a zone 9 semi-desert. I can expect triple digit temps now and then through September. I therefore plan to plant in the fall, but here freezing temps are rare. Obviously, you need to check with more local authorities, but I'm guessing without brutally high temps until fall planting now will give your plants a chance to establish themselves before it starts snowing and give them a head start next spring.
Where should I keep the tree for 3 or 4 days until planting?
Doug N on Jan 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 3-4 days? Are you kidding. Leave it in the pot they sent it in or put in into a bigger container. No problem unless you have snow on the ground or frost like weather. I kept mine in a bigger plastic container for a few months to be sure the root system was established. It did fine.
I live in New York....zone 7. It is December and there is no way I can forsee the type of weather we will have. Our ground freezes in winter. Will it be safe to plant the C.M. in December. Would it be better to plant in a container and protect with your 6 and/or 8 foot covers and transplant when we are defrosted?????
Melissa on Dec 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Planting in fall/winter/early spring, while they are in their dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree. Also, with extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.
what color is the stem painted?
lisat on Mar 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The stem is a beige color it is really beautiful
