Petite Snow™ Crape Myrtle
Lagerstroemia indica 'Monow'
|Description||A dwarf crape myrtle with a small, shrubby form and upright branching topped by a profusion of snowy white crepe-like flower clusters in the heat of summer. A very useful size for smaller landscapes. Excellent massed in single-color plantings or used as an individual accent. Adapts well to containers. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water deeply when soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 5 ft. tall, 4 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge, Privacy Screen|
|Design Ideas||The white blossoms will help cool a hot part of the garden when massed there. Mix with other colors of crape myrtle in a line bordering a path or walkway. Decorate a bank by a pool with these colorful shrubs that bloom during the hottest time of year.|
|Companion Plants||Indian Hawthorn (Rhaphiolepis); Lilyturf (Liriope); False Heather (Cuphea); Agapanthus (Agapanthus); Daylily (Hemerocallis)|
|Care||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.|
|Lore||Linnaeus named the genus for his friend, Magnus Lagerstroem.|
