The Tuscarora is a tall crape myrtle with a broad crown and superior dark pink flowers. A long period of striking flower color, attractive fall foliage, fabulous, exfoliating bark and good drought-tolerance all combine to make this crape myrtle a favorite small tree for either formal or informal landscapes. It reaches a height of about 20 feet and experiences about 70 days of flowering. In the fall, the leaves turn a red-orange. All these qualities make the Tuscarora a great specimen tree, though it can also be planted in lines or groups. The Tuscarora is hardy but can be susceptible to late frost damage. It possesses a high mildew resistance and is hardy in Zones 7-9. USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9

STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

To help crape myrtles retain water, mulch with organic matter 2-3 inches deep, making sure to keep mulch a few inches away from the trunk. Water regularly until established. Remove dead branches any time and prune weak branches back in the spring in order to encourage a strong and productive tree.

Crape Myrtle-Tuscarora

My order arrived in a very timely manner and the quality of the tree looks great. New leaves on all branches. This order replaced a Crape that had not survived the winter. I look forward to seeing the beautiful pink blossoms. I will definitely order from you again. Your customer service is excellent.
