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.

Thrives in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish extensive root system. Feed before new growth begins in spring. Thin young trees in late winter to early spring, leaving 3 to 7 main trunks or canopy branches. Remove emerging suckers from base of older trees.

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.
