These plants are shrubs. The development of the The Crapemyrtle is erect; in genereral in the lower part they have a pretty bare stem, while p many ramifications develop towards the top. This plant in the summer assumes a white colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 1,5 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.
Let's grow the The Crapemyrtle in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. Let's grow the The Crapemyrtle outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.When the minimum temperatures are very low we can protec the more sensible brushes by covering their roots with dry leaves or straw.
We suggest watering the The Crapemyrtle every 2-3 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. If we decide to grow a specimen of the Crapemyrtle in a container, we should remember that it will have slightly different needs compared to a specimen grown in the ground: we should pay more attention to its water and nutritional needs and check more often for possible development of parassites.
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there aren’t flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
Locate in a soft soil with an accentuated drainage.
