Crape Myrtle Trees

Crape Myrtle


Anonymous added on April 26, 2011 | Answered

I live in Kansas City, MO and I recently purchased a Tonto crape myrtle, planting it on the northeast corner of our home. I need to know if it will survive the winter.  It does get good sun for a good 6 hours. I need to know so I can replant it if necessary.

Some are hardy to Zone 6, and given adequate winter protection (ie-winter wrapping), there are some people who have had luck growing these plants in colder areas. As an alternative, you can grow the tree in a container. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/crepe-myrtle/tips-to-grow-crepe-myrtles-in-containers.htm
