Crape Myrtle 'Chickasaw'

18 years ago

Last Summer, I saw these little fellows (less than 2'). They have deep green foliage and pink flowers that start off like little beads and then open. They bloomed last year in Summer through October. At first I bought 4 and then I purchased 3 more.

When I bought them, the grower (Groff's) told me they would die back to the ground in their first few Winters and then shoot right back up. He also mentioned they would start coming back fairly late in the Spring.

All 7 of mine did just that. They are sprouting new foliage fairly quickly.

Does anyone else grow these little fellows and, if so, how do they work for you?
