    Lagerstroemia indica.

    Here's a neat red one, and these do survive, here in New York.

    Ah yes, crepe myrtle. They are hardy over zones far and wide and are quite beautiful. They really stand out here in Kansas in August and on when there is precious little else blooming save for the ROS.

    Wow I just love that. What zone are they hardy to? I know there are dwarfs and different sizes. Anybody know the most hardy for maybe my zone 5/6?
    Thanks!
    Happy Growing,

    I am not sure what the northern limit is for Crape Myrtles. Down here in Florida, they can be grown as trees. I had one when I lived in Lexington, KY. There, it killed to the ground every winter, and would come up very late, but it always bloomed.

    Vicki- I think you'd be safe buying from the local Wal-Mart as they usually engage regional/local nurseries.
