Victor Dwarf Crapemyrtle & Chickasaw Crapemyrtle

samnsarahMarch 8, 2013

(I edited this question to allow for a little more flexibility.) I'm interested landscaping design in planting a crapemyrtle shrub as a foundation plant under a 4' tall window that is approx. 4' above the ground. I am mostly interested in hiding the ugly cinder block foundation that is approx. 2-2.5 feet high. I don't care if the shrub covers the window a little, as long as it doesn't completly cover it. I'm considering either the Lagerstroemia indica 'Victor' or Lagerstroemia indica 'Chickasaw' but I am reading conflicting reports of how tall they will really grow.
Does anyone have experience with the Victor Dwarf Crapemyrtle or Chickasaw Crapemyrtle who can tell me about their mature size?

With specs that tight, I'd recommend going with plastic plants.

At any particular site, there are way too many variables beyond your control and our ability to predict for such limitations. And, BTW, typical estimates for both of the cultivars you mention fall outside your range.
