Tonto is an award-winning Crape Myrtle that has large clusters of soft-textured fuchsia-red blooms on a semi-dwarf, multi-stemmed shrub. Foliage turns a vibrant orange red in the fall for exquisite cool season color. The smooth, colorful peeling bark adds year-round character. Tonto resists mildew and is heat and drought tolerant. This Crape Myrtle only grows 8 to 10 feet tall and wide on a vase shaped branch structure. You will appreciate its disease and insect resistance, as well as its drought tolerance once established. It does adapt to a wide range of soils. Tonto blooms around 75 days.
