A very low growing miniature weeping crepe myrtle, which produces an eye-catching display of purple flowers. Thrives in hot conditions. Suited to rock gardens, for use as a massed groundcover or in hanging baskets. Excellent when grown in an 'urn'-like container where the pendulous branches can hang to effect.
Slow to moderate.
A prostrate, spreading shrub with arching, symmetric branches.
Lustrous mid-green to bluish-green leaves. The new growth is often bronze.
Intense purplish-pink flowers, are borne abundant panicles, from early to mid-summer into autumn.
The young stems are an attractive reddish colour.
Adaptable to a range of conditions, but is best in moist, well drained, slightly acidic soils in a position receiving full sun. Moderate drought and heat tolerant. Suitable for hot, sunny climates, however it can be susceptible to powdery mildew in cool, humid conditions. Transplants easily.
