'Perky Pink' is part of the BARISTA® Collection series of dwarf crape myrtles that will give you all the best qualities of a crape myrtle in a compact shape with enhanced disease resistance and cold hardiness. These compact crape myrtles are a very fast growing shrub that fill with gorgeous clusters of perfect pink blooms from July to September, and both beautiful, hearty, and very drought resistant once established. The dark green leaves provide a perfect backdrop for the blooms and a beautiful contrast to the brighter greens of your garden. 

The blooms of a crape myrtle are a magnificent display that attract flocks of hummingbirds and butterflies through the summer months. These dark pink crape myrtles produce 4” to 6” clusters of dark pink flowers that can last for many weeks or even months. The leaves of crape myrtles are a unique glossy dark mocha/green. compared to other crape myrtles the Cherry Mocha is slower growing, but can reach 2 to 3 feet if not pruned. Cherry Mocha keeps a shrub like form, which makes it perfect for a shrub border, a backdrop in front of a fence, lining a drive, or planting on the corner of a house.

The mature height of this plant will be higher in zones where winter dieback does not occur.
