I LOVE my crepe myrtle!!!!!!! Didn't know what she was the first year and kept cutting her down == she kept coming back --- so we transplanted her. My Myrtle sits in front of my bedroom window and gives my husband and I great pleasure!! Just goes to show that if something fights hard to live --- let it grow!!!!!

Can be planted in part shade or full morning sun. After first blooms die --- cut back and it will bloom again --- bringing major smiles!!!
