Victor (dwarf) Crape Myrtle
Lagerstroemia indica 'Victor'
Victor, a crape myrtle shrub that grows to about a 5' tall, is good for low hedges and mixed borders. It produces deep brick-red blooms over an 85-day period starting in early midseason. Leaves turn yellow in fall.
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.Photo courtesy of Our Growing Friends at Casey Nursery in Goldsboro, NC
