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.


Although Crape Myrtles are very well suited for hot and humid environments, a long summer can still take its toll on the leaves, especially in a nursery setting. The leaves may be showing some signs of stress, such as discoloration, or possibly even some signs of fungus. Any concern would have been treated before the trees left our nursery, but the discoloration will still show on the leaves. The trees will go dormant soon and the discolored leaves will fall. Once the trees are planted in an open location they will not exhibit these symptoms again in the spring.

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.

Thanks for that beautiful plant.
Am jay live in Detroit, MI. I love all Crape Myrtles more than any others plants. I bought all the ones that are good for Zone 6. Sioux Crape Myrtle I bought it this spring it came in a great shape and the same size that I ordered. I followed all planting instructions. The plant was in a dormant period of 4 weeks and now I see new growth started. I chose a sunny place and the space suppose to get. I will do everything possible to make my Crape Myrtles live. Cuz I live in a very cold area during winter.

Planting & Care



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


Sioux Crape Myrtle Planting Diretions

Sioux crape myrtles (Lagerstroemia x Sioux) are a flowering ornamental that can tolerate a wide range of soil types and climates. These crape myrtles can tolerate more cold temperatures than other types of crapes, bringing longer periods of summer blooms further north from zones 6-10. With a beautiful array of dark pink blooms, this tree will be a welcome addition to any environment.
Sioux crapes are great for small spaces like parking lots and small lawns. They’re a medium sized tree that reaches 15-20 feet tall, 10-15 feet wide and can be trained into a single trunk tree or a multi-trunked tree. Once established, these trees are fast growers, growing as much as 3-4 feet a year.

 

Choosing a location: Crapes are FULL SUN lovers so try and find a spot where they will get as much sun as possible. Without the proper exposure your blooming will be substantially reduced or it may not bloom at all. The Tuscarora is very adaptable to many soil types so just be sure that the area you’re looking to plant has adequate drainage when watering.

Planting directions:
1) After you have found your planting area, make your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep.
2) Carefully remove the myrtle’s root ball from the container. Lightly tapping the container around the bottom will help free it up without causing too much damage to the root system.
3) Lightly comb your hands over the root ball to free up the roots a bit before planting.
4) Place your tree in the hole and make sure that the root crown (where the root ball meets the trunk(s) of the tree) is level with the soil surface. Crapes need to be able to pull oxygen into their root systems so covering them too much may inhibit their growth.
5) Tamp down the soil lightly as you backfill the hole to prevent air pockets from forming and then water after you’ve finished to settle the soil.
6) Mulch the area around the tree to conserve water moisture and deter competing weeds and grasses from growing.

Watering: Myrtles are quite drought tolerant but may need a bit more attention with watering during the hot summer season. Depending on your soil, there may need to be more frequent waterings, especially those with very sandy soils. After planting, water regularly to start. If the climate is hot you may need to water up to five times weekly especially in lighter soils. During the cooler seasons you’ll only need to water once weekly. Proper soil moisture is important in the hot season so that you’ll have a healthier tree and better looking blooms.

Pruning: Crape pruning is always a “mixed bag” if asking anyone when and how to prune. “Crape murder” is a common term heard with those who go far beyond what is necessary when trimming their myrtles. Prune in the late winter before any of the growth begins. If done in the late fall you will jeopardize the tree’s dormancy state which can lead to the tree dying. Sterilize your cutting tools with rubbing alcohol to ensure no pathogens infect the tree and always make your cuts at a 45 degree angle.

Some prefer to chop off all of the branches at a uniformed height every year leaving the stubs for the winter season that form a ball of growth in the springtime. This is good for height control and a uniformed border but can commonly result in knobby stems and bunchy growths that are easily susceptible to disease and aphid pests. This is where the term “crape murder” comes into play. Only a light pruning of the myrtle is needed to encourage plenty of blooms but “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” when it comes to choosing the shape of your crapes.

For a more graceful tree shape, remove all but 4-5 strong trunks and then remove the lateral branches around the bottom ½ of the tree. To encourage branching, make your cuts on the longer, leggy limbs. Try not to over prune too early, do your basic pruning then allow the tree to grow a bit and then continue shaping over time. Remove any damaged, diseased, or crossing branches during the late winter. Also be sure to remove any suckers or low growths to prevent your crape from looking more shrub-like.

Fertilizing: Your Tuscarora Crape will greatly benefit from an annual feeding of a high nitrogen fertilizer such as a 20-10-10 slow release formula in the early spring season. If you care to fertilize twice, feed the tree again roughly two months later. Slow release fertilizer will cut back on sucker growths but be aware, excessive fertilizing can lead to tree and limb growth but will inhibit the blooms from forming due to excess amounts of nitrogen.

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!

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.
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.
The Sioux CM says spacing of only 3-5Ft? I want to plant 4 in a row, is that correct between each tree?
frank M on Oct 8, 2017
I am in South Florida. Will the tree lose its leaves in the winter?
Margarita D on Nov 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Margarita, I am in Boston and my tree is losing it leaves, I don't know about South Florida since the climate is much warmer in the winter.
Will theses grow in clay like soil?
Jennifer E on Nov 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Clay soil will harden in droughts. The amount of clay is important, but if mixed with potting soil in a 50/50 mix it should be ok!!
Would the Sioux Crape Myrtle do well as a tree for a planter ?
