I love this shrub, however it has outgrown it's stated 18" x 18". When I purchased it two years ago it was about 12" tall, my "Violet Filli" shrub is now 3' x 3'.

I found this plant at a big box store, go figure. It seems too good to be true, a zone 4 crapemyrtle, but I'm willing to try it. Beautiful flowers, and it looks great next to Veronica or Lobelia syphilitica.
