While I was getting my new hen, I passed this crape myrtle, the darkest red I have ever seen. Exbf was as impressed as I.
The picture does not do it justice. Those highlights on the flowers did not exist.
I felt guilty, but I took two small limbs from the bottom to try and grow my own. I have many small pieces from the two limbs I got. They are in a jar of water in the kitchen window. Now, I wonder if I should have shoved the limbs down into a bucket of dirt. ???
Have you ever seen these really dark red crape myrtles? Do you have a name for the variety?
