Crape myrtle 'Petite Orchid' -- train into a small tree?
Just planted a 1 gal. "Petite Orchid" crape myrtle, which is supposed to be a vigorous, multi-branched shrub, five feet tall. Just wondering if anyone has had any success training one into a small, single branched tree (by selecting a single leader at an early stage)? I must say this plant looks like it very much wants to be multi-branched.
