crape myrtles: mail order websites
Do any of you fellow NJ gardeners have any experience ordering Crape Myrtle Trees online via mail order websites? I'm yearning to plant a Crape Myrtle tree this Fall on the southeast corner of my house, but none of the garden centers in my area have any Crapes in stock. I found a mail order company in North Carolina called 'FAST GROWING TREES NURSERY' that has a bunch of Crapes in stock and they assured me that their Crapes will acclimate just fine in my zone(6). I know this is right at the cut-off point where Crape Myrtles are considered to hardy. Do you think I'm safe planting Crapes in my zone? Somone told me that planting Crapes anywhere north of Newark is a NO-NO. I just thought I'd throw this message on the forum and see what others have to say. Looking forward to your feedback. Thanks!
