Crape Myrtle Muskogee

Call us at (925) 516-1052 to check availability

Muskogee Crape Myrtle is characterized by an exceptionally fast growth rate unequaled by all of the hybrid selections from the United States Department of Agriculture National Arboretum, Muskogee produces an impressive mature tree specimen.

In 15 to 20 years, Muskogee reaches a height of 30 feet and a width of 15-20 feet with a massive trunk caliper.

Muskogee flowers are light lavender and very prolific with an unusually long blooming period lasting up to 120 days.

Foliage shows excellent vigor with glossy green leaves that are capable of turning bright red in autumn. Exfoliating bark is an attractive shiny light gray to tan color. Muskogee is certainly one of the best United States Department of Agriculture National Arboretum hybrid selections where a full sized tree is desired within a reasonably short time frame.
