Lagerstromia indica 'Sioux'
Sioux is a wonderful mid sized crape myrtle with excellent form & shape. If trimmed / pruned properly, it forms a very dense small tree. Its foliage is by far the darkest green of any crape myrtle we have ever seen!! This dark foliage is contrasted by masses of dark pink blooms that usually start in late June, and last well into August. This crape myrtle variety was a Georgia Gold Medal winner in 1996 - and deservedly so.
