Petite Plum Crape Myrtle / Monum Crape Myrtle
Lagerstroemia indica 'Petite Plum'
Petite Plum is slightly larger 'dwarf' crape myrtle with an upright form, but with a rich plum purple. It, too, is a vigorous grower with profuse blooming characteristic.
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. Blooms will be on new wood.
