Lagerstroemia indica 'Centennial'

Centennial is valued for its dwarf size and profuse pinkish-purple flowers. This hybrid crape myrtle matures at about 4' height & spread. Blooms for about 70 days. Great for small spaces and containers.

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 (If you prune any other time, you will be pruning next years blooms off).
