crape myrtles are hardy
Last year at the end of the season I purchased about 5 dwarf crape myrtles in small pots. I never got around to planting them, and did not even find a place to store them. I left them in the front of the house, never having made a decision about what to do with them.
Our cold dry winter came and went, but I never got around to putting the poor things in the trash. I looked at them daily, yet did not move them.
Last week I noticed some growth. At this time 4 of the 5 are showing significant growth.
Their ultimate height should be 5 feet - something I doubt, but I will see.
Now I have to find a good place for them.
