watering a Black Diamond Crepe Myrtle

How often do you water a Black Diamond Crepe Myrtle? It says on it that it’s a shrub but I see everywhere else that it’s a tree. Should I plant it away from my foundation?

Crepe Myrtle is a deciduous flowering shrub.
Crepe Myrtle likes a medium amount of water and prefers consistently moist soil.
Once established it is generally drought tolerant, but you should make sure it receives a deep watering at least twice a month.
A new planting should be kept consistently moist and watered deeply once a week unless it rains.
Mulching can help reduce watering needs and help roots grow deep.
