Design Ideas: A striking crape myrtle with small shrubby stature that brings the vivid late summer color into beds and borders. Spices up foundation planting perfectly. Plant as a single, in groups to intensify color or in a row for a beautiful blooming hedge. When used next to outdoor living areas the attractive bark may be enjoyed while plants are dormant.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.

History

Many assume the crape myrtle is native because it is so common in the South, but it is among the first Asian introductions in America that proved perfectly adapted to the rigors of hot, humid climates.
