Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Does well in loamy, clay soils with good drainage. Benefits from a slow release fertilizer.

Common name: crape myrtle
Color: White
Bloom time: July to September
Height: 2.00 to 10.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Growing crape myrtles in the St. Louis area can be tricky because the above ground branches often die to the ground in winter, particularly when temperatures dip below -5 degrees F. Above ground branches are considered to be winter hardy to USDA Zone 7, whereas roots are usually but not always hardy to USDA Zone 5.

Sunlight: full sun

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: medium

Temprature: -5 degrees F

Fertilizer: apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • They are grown for their very showy, lovely summer to fall bloom.
  • In warmer areas many can be grown as trees but in colder climates they may be killed to the ground but resprout from below ground to be grown more as shrubs.
  • It is a deciduous, upright, spreading, multi-stemmed shrub.


Special Feature:
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.
Use
Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
The two main disease problems of crape myrtles are fungal leaf spot and powdery mildew. Foliage may yellow (chlorosis) in alkaline soils. Some susceptibility to aphids and scale. Winter injury, particularly to top growth, may occur in USDA Zones 5 and 6.
