Hopi Crape Myrtle

phyleux(Z6 WPA)September 1, 2011

Hello all...haven't posted on here for a good long while so I thought I'd share some pics. I bought this Hopi Crape Myrtle back in Summer '05 and just wanted to show you all how well it's doing here in zone 6. Doing so well that next year I plan on buying a Tonto to keep it company.

Very pretty - I'd send you my Zuni if it were shippable :)
A lovely small tree with bronzy leaves and interesting bark, but has never bloomed in more than 15 years, not enough summer heat or cloudless days. I've got it in my hottest possible location - I've quit looking for flowers and just enjoy it for what it is.

Yours is great though, nice spot of color.

Hey, phyleux, nice to "see" you again. Your tree is beautiful! Do you still winter sow?

How's CC doing these days?

My husband bought me a dwarf one last year. I forget the name but the tag said only perennial to zone 7. It survived it's first winter and is beautiful now.

Hi! Finally got around to looking at the pictures. That Hopi is beautiful. As I said, I don't know what mine is because it is so small and the flowers were too but now I want a Hopi!!! Hope it lasts thru the winter here in Zone 6.

Love the photos! I just got one and like others, pray it works here in SW PA, zone 6. Yours is gorgeous! RIght now it's newly arrived and looks like the ugliest thing (no pruning, blah blah) but it looks like a beauty. Thanks for sharing!
