This woody shrub is growing in a NYC garden -- it has small white flowers over a long period of time in the summer ... nice fall color too ... anyone know what it is? Here are the seed pods (picture taken in November) ...

I'm pretty sure you've got a Lagerstroemia, crape myrtle, illustrated there. That's not quite the normal form for the plant, but the opposite colorful foliage and seed heads are a giveaway.

Thanks for the ID -- I'm sad I can't grow this in my zone 5a garden ... it's a super plant in many ways ...
