    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Natchez Crape Myrtle is truly a year round color factory producing large, 16-inch long white flower clusters for up to 120 days during summer! The dark green glossy leaves provide a nice backdrop for the flowers and turn to colorful shades of red, orange, and yellow during the fall. Exfoliating bark reveals a spectacular cinnamon color trunk that provides winter interest in the landscape. Totally mildew resistant Fauriei hybrid.

    Natchez is a very tall growing crape myrtle useful small groupings or as a single specimen, as a tall screen or hedge, on the corners to frame in homes, on the west side of the home for shade and cooling, 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.
