    More about Arapaho Crape Myrtle...

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Arapaho is a Fauriei Hybrid crape myrtle that offers year-round interest with its glossy, dark green leaves, beautiful exfoliating bark, and panicles of near true red flowers. The large clusters of dark, watermelon-red flowers begin to appear in late spring and continue throughout summer, sometimes even into fall providing a spectacular show in the landscape!

    Uses

    Arapaho is a taller growing crape myrtle great fior use in small groupings or as a single specimen, as a colorful screen or hedge, on the corners to frame in homes and other structures, or planted on both sides of an entryway.

    About Fauriei Hybrid Crape Myrtles

    In 1959, Dr. Donald Egolf began a crapemyrtle research project at the U.S. National Arboretum to develop crape myrtles that were disease resistant, hardy, true to flower color, and that would repeat bloom.

    Germplasm of Lagerstroemia fauriei was collected in Japan by Dr. John Creech and distributed to the U.S. National Arboretum. This material was discovered to be resistant to powdery mildew; a disease known to inflict many varieties of crape myrtle, and to possess a unique, heritable, dark brown trunk color. L. fauriei was incorporated into the research program with great success. Since then, twenty "Fauriei Hybrid" crapemyrtle cultivars have been released!

    The successful hybridization of Lagerstroemia indica with Lagerstroemia fauriei revolutionized the development of crapemyrtle. In addition to field resistance to powdery mildew, the hybrids provide new trunk colors that in the future may be sought as much as the brilliant flowers.

    The Arapaho's were planted a few weeks ago. It's to early for them to start growing. I'm sure we will love them when they come into bloom. Will do business with them again. Keep up the great work!
