TheCrape Myrtle is a dwarf variety that grows 3 to 4 feet tall and wide, which makes it a great choice if you want to bring big color into a small area.
The deep red blossoms start in June, and bloom through to September. The leaves turn a vibrant orange-red in the fall.
The exfoliating bark is displayed in the winter once the leaves drop, giving you unique looks to your winter landscape. The Victor Crape Myrtle is ideally suited for formal or informal design in the home landscape, street plantings and community plantings.
It can be planted as a specimen or in groups, and looks attractive when underplanted with a ground cover. Crape Myrtle is easy to grow and if they are used for hedges, plant them 2 to 3 feet apart.
