I cannot imagine that no one has reported on the crepe myrtle! It is definitely the plant for those that say they kill every thing they try to grow! It is very hardy, colorful, and some varieties have a scent much like lilac. I have a white one that is very tall, very full, and has an exquisite fragrance. The bark in the winter time is very attractive, rather a mottled effect. It can survive droughts and neglect. It pretty much takes care of itself, but flourishes when nurtured. It propagates easily just by sticking a small limb in the ground. Leave it over the winter and it will bear leaves in the spring. When it is not blooming, it is a very beautiful and lush greenery.
