‘Cherry Mocha’ bears bright red flower clusters with crinkled edges held against deep green foliage with a burgundy tint. While Crape Myrtles are typically only grown in the South, this hardy variety was bred in Michigan and shown to withstand winter weather up to zone 6! Includes two ‘Cherry Mocha’ in 4” pots.

Now gardeners in the North can enjoy the beauty of Crape Myrtles! ‘Cherry Mocha’ grows as a small, tight shrub and provides a bold burst of color in late summer to early fall. Crape Myrtles thrive in hot summer weather and perform best in full sun. While deer find the foliage of Crape Myrtles unappetizing, pollinators can’t resist the bright blossoms. ‘Cherry Mocha’ requires little care or maintenance, and provides a colorful show year after year!
