    Crape myrtles are common here, pruned as small (20-30′) trees, depending on the cultivar, some are smaller. Few pests bother them here and they are drought tolerant once established.

    Will these eventually form a hedge? I’ve never seen Crape Myrtle planted here, even though it is hardy in Phoenix and is trained into a tree by some.It is very prone to aphid infestations, so maybe that’s why not many have it.

    Crape Myrtle is a plant I don’t grow … very nice. Does it get quite tall and bushy?It is nice to discover another seed collector like me. Stop by and see my Sow Then Grow blog ( ) as well as My Canadian Garden blog. I have had a nice visit.

    I’ve seen a few photos of Crape Myrtle around the blogworld the last few days. Not a plant I know at all…possibly it’s not hardy here in the UK. Happy GTS :o)
