Crape Myrtle Tonto (Dark Red)
The Crape Myrtle Tonto (Lagerstroemia 'Tonto') is an upright shrub that blooms bright magenta flowers and functions as an accent plant.
A hybrid creation from the Japanese Crape and the common Crape, the Tonto can also create small hedges and be used for other screening purposes.
A few facts about this mildew-resisting shrub and its beauty:
• In the fall, the Tonto’s foliage turns a dull red color.
• Its spring leaves are bronze.
• A less significant, second bloom may likely occur in early autumn.
• And it’s likely the last tree in your backyard to lose its leaves.
The Crape Myrtle Tonto should be planted in well-drained soil and hardiness zones 7-10. Full sun is required, but, once the plant is established, it becomes tolerant to drought.
At maturity, the Tonto will grow a maximum 10 feet tall and six feet wide, making the plant a perfect solution for landscapes with little space.
Developed in 1990, the Tonto is a winner of the Georgia Gold Medal (1996) and the Mississippi Medallion (1999) awards for its notable versatility.
