Most tree like Lagerstroemia (Crape Myrtle) for Zone 6?
There are a few trees of the south I would like to have. One is a good crape myrtle tree.
My wife got me hooked with this zone 7 Dynamite cultivar from the box store a few years back. It lives here, just as a shrub which dies back half way every year. I'm going to move it to a more protected location and see how it does.
In some older neighborhoods I see vase shaped shrubs with pink flowers. Close to what I'm looking for but I would appreciate a single trunk variety.
MOBOT generically says Crapes will be milti-stemmed shrubs in St Louis.
Anyone have any different experiences? A recommended culitivar or favorite of these?
Lagerstroemia Natchez - White Crape Myrtle
Lagerstroemia Osage - Pink Crape Myrtle
Lagerstroemia Tonto - Red Crape Myrtle
Lagerstroemia Zuni - Lavender Crape Myrtle
I would love to see pictures of a zone 6 tree like one.
