Hopi Crape Myrtle

The Hopi Crape Myrtle has rich pink color and blooms that withstand the harshest of climates. It’s ideal for chilly weather up north, thriving down to 0 degrees in zone 6, or hot, arid climates out west – especially since it’s often used as a ‘fireproof’ shrub in areas prone to wildfire. So, the only work for you is planting. Once your Hopi is established, it needs very little water. And it resists pests and diseases like a champ, making harsh chemicals and spraying unnecessary.
