Dwarf Crape Myrtle

Petite Red Imp TM Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica ‘Monimp’) is a dwarf variety of a popular, showy deciduous shrub that displays a profusion of deep crimson blossoms from summer to fall. Distinctive bark has a smooth, attractive texture. Excellent when massed in single-color plantings, or used as an individual accent. Perfect for bringing color and texture to small spaces.

Thrives in average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed in early spring.
