It matures to an average height of 1 foot to 2 feet and an average width of 2 feet to 3 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun or morning shade with afternoon sun and grows best when planted in loam or clay soil that is well drained or moderately drained. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer, drought, insects, diseases and heat.

Pocomoke Dwarf Crape Myrtle can be useful in the landscape in containers or planters, in shrub borders, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas or in landscape beds or islands and also in rock or xeriscape gardens, theme gardens, cottage gardens or perennial gardens.

Noteworthy Characteristics

Of all the dwarf crape myrtles planted in our gardens Pocomoke is the most dwarf, growing in a low mounding form to only 20 inches in height with a spread of about 3 feet. Released by the U.S. National Arboretum in 1998, this Fauriei Hybrid cultivar features deep rose-pink flowers from mid to late summer.

Uses

Ideally suited for residential settings, Pocomoke can be included in large mass plantings or in small groups to create a low-growing hedge. It also fits nicely in container gardens.

If seasonal color and a low-growing mature height are important to you, Pocomoke Dwarf Crape Myrtle is the showstopper plant for your garden!

About Fauriei Hybrid Crape Myrtles

In 1959, Dr. Donald Egolf began a crapemyrtle research project at the U.S. National Arboretum to develop crape myrtles that were disease resistant, hardy, true to flower color, and that would repeat bloom.

Germplasm of Lagerstroemia fauriei was collected in Japan by Dr. John Creech and distributed to the U.S. National Arboretum. This material was discovered to be resistant to powdery mildew; a disease known to inflict many varieties of crape myrtle, and to possess a unique, heritable, dark brown trunk color. L. fauriei was incorporated into the research program with great success. Since then, twenty "Fauriei Hybrid" crapemyrtle cultivars have been released!

The successful hybridization of Lagerstroemia indica with Lagerstroemia fauriei revolutionized the development of crapemyrtle. In addition to field resistance to powdery mildew, the hybrids provide new trunk colors that in the future may be sought as much as the brilliant flowers.
