I bought four miniature Crepe Myrtles (Lagerstroemia) about four years ago. This one is named 'New Orleans.' It is supposed to grow three feet tall, but is up to four feet this year. Miniature Crepe Myrtles are great for garden beds. Once the weather heats up, they take off. They provide color while Roses are resting. I love the purple color of this one! Purple is my step-mother's favorite color, so I made a birthday card out of this image for her birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday Charlotte!
