The common name of this plant is crape myrtle. It is called this because the flowers have crinkly petals that resemble the material called crepe paper. Crape myrtle likes moist soil, where it will grow exceedingly fast, but it tolerates dry conditions once established. It is an outstanding ornamental that rewards with a long blooming season of showy flowers. This is a compact bushy variety that will grow 3 to 4 feet tall. They are quickly gaining popularity as a great way to add nonstop colour to small spaces and container gardens, especially in hot sunny positions. Supplied in approx 2-3 litre containers.
