This variety is a semi-dwarf so it doesn’t take up quite the space of the traditional varieties. The Dwarf Peppermint Crepe Myrtle can be planted and left to its own devices or it can be pruned to a shorter height or even into tree form.
It works as well in a hedge as it does in a group; it’s all about the later-season flower show. Attracts bees and butterflies, too. Plant them parallel to driveways, along sidewalks or paths; they are especially dramatic below second-story decks and balconies.
