You would have thought only gnomish magic could create such amazingly dwarf and hardy Crepe Myrtles. The first of their kind Fleming Crepe Myrtlettes are hardy for the east and north and tested to -30 degrees Fahrenheit (zone 4) for over ten years! The Fleming Brothers bred these over a 60 year period.. Our plants come back from the base in colder regions, so emerge a little later, and from the branches of the plant every year, they need less water and bloom until Fall before setting seed. They stay 2 to 3 feet and under so you can utilize them in "mass" plantings or as a specimen in landscapes or patioscapes. For Best Shipping values:To offset the shipping cost we suggest ordering more than 1 plant for the best price. it is more cost effective to 3, 4 or 5 to bigger box for apx 25.oo instead of 18.oo for one plant. Shipping costs are calculated by UPS fees related to pot size, weight, plant size, zip codes, and our actual box costs.
