- plant care is not difficult but does require vigilance.
- The vines need to be trained early when they are young.
- You may use plant ties or just weave them through trellis sections.
- Fertilize the plant in spring just before new growth appears.
- Pinch off the tips of the vines in the second year to promote branching which will fill the trellis with bushy growth.
Good as a specimen shrub or in groups. Shrub borders or perennial borders. In the South where above ground winter hardiness is not a problem, this cultivar is also quite effective as a tall screen or informal hedge.
- The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
The two main disease problems of crape myrtles are fungal leaf spot and powdery mildew. This cultivar reportedly has excellent mildew resistance. Foliage may yellow (chlorosis) in alkaline soils. Some susceptibility to aphids and scale.
