Lagerstroemia indica 'Peppermint Lace'

Peppermint Lace is named for its picotee flower, a deep-drose pink edged with white, creating a candy-stripe effect. Named and introduced by Monrovia in 1972. Note: Regardless of hardiness zone, all crape myrtles are subject to die-back at temps below 15 degrees. Probability of this happening is increased by pruning in fall or winter. Prune only in earliest spring. Bloom will be on new wood. *Seldom Damaged by Deer* Attracts: Butterflies, Hummingbirds & Birds.
