Design IdeasThis 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.
