Design Ideas: This smaller new Crape Myrtle thinks it's a shrub. It is small enough to fit easily into the tiniest city garden or courtyard. With its weeping white flower clusters and lustrous bark, it should be treated as a specimen and planted in raised beds or planters close by. An excellent candidate for huge ceramic pots, where it will grow happily for many years.

Thrives in average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed in early spring. Thin young trees late winter to early spring; leave 3 to 7 main trunks or canopy branches. Remove suckers from the base of older trees.

History

The earliest crepe myrtle trees were grown by Michaux and sent from his nursery to man of our nation's most important early plantations such as Montechello and Mount Vernon.
