Sacramento has been called the best true miniature crape myrtle ever developed. It comes from ÔWorldÕs FairÕ, a deeper red, more compact, more symmetrical variety. Sacramento is hot pink, low-growing, and spreading. Very heavy bloomer the second year. Great in a mixed border with sun-loving perenniels. Very heat tolerant.
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.
