Crape Myrtle





Garden - Crape Myrtle

Got this from Home Depot on April 2011. Combined with a fence and some Honey Suckle it is placed to reduce the infestation of kids that my garden has. I have seen that they get quite big and good for that purpose.

In theory it preffers a sunny position but thats tough, im sure it will survive. This is actually white Crape Myrtle.

It was also cheap, on offer at $9.99.

August 2011

After 4 months on its own it has done what most of my plants seem to do and thats completly die off and start again. This plant is a mass of bare stemms with 3-4 new shoots coming from parts of it. At least its still alive. Im not sure why its done that, either bad light, lack of water, weeds or just the shock of being planted (im my garden).
