    More about Tuscarora Crape Myrtle...

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    If stunning floral display is your number one criteria, Tuscarora will most likely be your pick. The Tuscarora Crape Myrtle produces an abundance of large, coral-pink colored flower clusters for up to 120 days of summer. As with all other Fauriei Hybrids, Tuscarora is totally mildew resistant. 

    Uses

    Topping out at 15-20 feet in height, Tuscarora is a great selection for 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.
