Muskogee Crape Myrtle is a large rounded deciduous shrub with smooth exfoliating cinnamon bark with light grey inner bark.  The foliage is a glossy emerald green that turns red with fall, while the large lavender-pink panicles bloom on new wood in summer.   Flowers give way to round seed capsules that persist through winter.  Best color in full sun and rich well-drained soil.
