17 Jun High Cotton Crapemyrtle

Did you know High Cotton™ Crapemyrtle is a Worthington Farms’ selection?  Selected from our growing fields, Lagerstroemia x fauriei ‘Worthington’s Upright’, commonly known as High Cotton™, is a white blooming crapemyrtle with an upright vigorous growth habit and a naturally dense head.

Its leaves exhibit excellent mildew resistance and are a lustrous dark green.  Blooming later than many other cultivars, the flowers are white but its pink stamens suggest a hint of pink.  Its branches remain upright, even under the weight of blooms.  And last, but certainly not least, High Cotton ™ exhibits spectacular cinnamon-brown bark – a real show stopper!  Matures at 30+ feet tall.  Zones 6b-9.
