Hopi Crape Myrtle Semi-Dwarf Tree
Developed by the National Arboretum in Washington, DC, the Hopi Crape Myrtle produces pink crepe-like flowers set against its dark green foliage. Named for the North American Indian Tribe, the Hopi is a semi-dwarf crape myrtle reaching only as tall as up to 11 feet tall and up to 10 feet wide. Yellow to orange fall foliage sets off the grayish bark. Also known as Lilac of the South.
This picture of the Hopi was the last one taken by Greenwood Nursery customer Patti P. Patti purchased the Hopi Crape Myrtle from us in 2007. Beginning in 2008, she sent us a picture of her daughter, who at the time was 3 years old allowing us to watch her daughter and the tree grow up. This is the last picture that Patti will share with us as she and her family are moving. This tree located in the front corner of their home has been part of so many memories for their family. We, too, will miss being that part of their lives. But, Greenwood Nursery looks forward to becoming part of their new home life.
An easy to grow small tree, the Hopi Crepe Myrtle is an excellent choice for lots of summer color in southern gardens. This hybrid shows excellent mildew resistance.
Growing care for crape myrtles
The deciduous crape myrtle requires a regular watering schedule for the first year planted to establish an extensive root system. A general timed release fertilizer can be applied in spring once plant has begun to leaf out. This semi-dwarf tree blooms on new wood produced in spring. Old wood can be pruned away in early spring.
