Identifying a Crape
This past January I received a bare-root Crape Myrtle from a local Arbor Day giveaway (Florida's State Arbor Day is the third Saturday of January). When it was given to me, I asked the MG if she knew which cultivar it was so I would know where to put it. She told me that they did not know the cultivars and there could likely be more than one in the bunch they were giving away. So rather than putting it in the ground, I potted it in a sandy mix with nutients mixed in. Last week it started to leaf-out , so it managed to survive (still waiting on other trees acquired to show signs of life). It is currently only about 18-24" tall and there are two stems with one stem branched off the other and no suckers coming from the roots as of yet. I am curious as to if/when I might get the cultivar identified?
