The Miss Frances Crape Myrtle was developed by Cecil Pounders at the Thad Cochran Southern Horticultural Laboratory in Poplarville, MS by cross-pollinating Arapaho and Cherry Dazzle. While conducting their field studies the Miss Frances displayed a high level of resistance to powedery mildew and bacterial leaf spot which are common issues in North Texas. When compared to the Dynamite Crape Myrtle it has a very similar size at maturity and broad growth habit. The Miss Frances stands out with very dense branching and attractive glossy green foliage which has a bright red color when new growth appears. Starting in June the Miss Frances will produce dark red clusters of flowers which average 6” in length and at this same time it exfoliates its gray-brown colored bark in thin strips to expose a smooth and light brown colored bark. Like all Crape Myrtles the Miss Frances is adaptable to a wide range of soil types and very drought tolerant.
