Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei ‘Pocomoke’
- Common Name(s):
- Pokomoke crepe myrtle
"Truly amazing" are words use to describe the dwarf 'Pocomoke' crape myrtle. Released by the U.S. National Arboretum in 1998, this cultivar features deep, rose-pink flowers in mid to late summer. Perhaps the greatest attribute is its mature height. 'Pocomoke' will grow to 20 inches tall and have a spread of 35 inches.
'Pocomoke' thrives with the same cultural conditions as that of a typical crape myrtle plant. Thansplant in full sun to ensure a beautiful floral display in July and August.
Like all crape myrtles, 'Pocomoke' is a deciduous shrub which drops its foliage each autumn. This drought and disease tolerant plant needs a spacing of 3 fet between shrubs Ideally suited for residential settings, 'Pocomoke' crpe myrtle can be included in large mass plantings or in small roups to create a low-growing hedge. If seasonal color and a low growing mature height are important to you, then this is the showstopper plant for your garden.
