Sturdy, reliable and hardy. Great exfoliating bark.

Before planting, be aware this is a *large* and upright crepe myrtle. It's best suited as the centerpiece of an island bed or out in the yard as a stand-alone tree. It will quickly outgrow foundation plantings or edging.

'Miami' is supposed to be highly resistant to powdery mildew and sooty black mold. Mine were planted one year and three months ago, and so far so good. No problems at all, vigorous growth, and beautiful blooms.
