Truly amazing" are words used to describe the dwarf 'Pocomoke' crepe myrtle. Released by the U.S. National Arboretum in 1998, this cultivar features deep, rose-pink flowers in mid to late summer. 'Pocomoke' thrives with the same cultural conditions as that of a typical crepe myrtle plant. Transplant in full sun to ensure a beautiful floral display in July and August.
Like all crepe myrtles, 'Pocomoke' is a deciduous shrub which drops its foliage each autumn. This drought and disease tolerant plant needs a 3 foot spacing between shrubs. 'Pocomoke' crepe myrtle can be included in large mass plantings or in small groups 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.
