Lowe's has their crape myrtles on sale for 1/2 off and I just picked up a Tuscarora. The tag said it got 10-15' tall. But looking online, a lot of other sources claim it gets 25' tall. Anyone out there have one? Can you tell me how big this will get? I really don't want a 25' specimen for this spot! thx

I think these are GORGEOUS! I started with a volunteer sapling of this pink about 10 years ago. Mine does not get a lot of water and it stands about 12 feet tall. That's all I know

I just planted 6 within the past two weeks, the blooms are beautiful and they seem to love the heat! At the nursery, the lady who helped me told me to expect them to get around 15-20' tall at maturity.

Best of luck!
