Infinitini Watermelon Dwarf Crape Myrtle
Luscious Flowers Dripping with Color
If you thought watermelon was only for eating, you haven’t seen the watermelon-colored flowers of Infinitini Watermelon Dwarf Crape Myrtle! The Infinitini series of crape myrtles has been carefully bred as a solution for smaller urban yards that cannot support the larger growth of conventional crape myrtle shrubs and trees. Reaching a maximum height of only 4 feet (with an equal spread), the Infinitini Watermelon Dwarf Crape Myrtle packs a punch of color in a tidy package.
For Rural or Urban Gardens
• Deer-resistant. Deer will munch on real watermelons, but they leave Infinitini Watermelon Dwarf Crape Myrtle alone! This is icing on the cake for rural gardeners who find it challenging to grow flowering perennials without finding tattered remnants after hungry deer visit.
• Watermelon-pink flowers. Infinitini Watermelon Dwarf Crape Myrtles bear flowers in an unusual shade of reddish-pink, which is most closely described as watermelon.
• Compact shrub. “Compact” describes Infinitini Watermelon Dwarf Crape Myrtle’s growth habit; “mounding” is another description. It simply means that the growth is tight and dense, with an equal height and width.
Even in sweltering summer heat when other flowering plants begin to fade, the Infinitini Watermelon Dwarf Crape Myrtle delivers a refreshing botanical slice of color as it continues to bloom throughout the season. Plant it where it will continue to enliven your yard or garden when earlier-blooming perennials reach their peak and begin to decline. As a container plant, Infinitini Watermelon Dwarf Crape Myrtle is a standout. Choose a heavy pot to support its top growth, use a soilless potting mix formulated for containers and place the plant where it’s a focal point.
Crape Myrtle Culture
Infinitini Watermelon Dwarf Crape Myrtles need the same care as larger crape myrtles: a full-sun site, plenty of water to help new plants become established and late-spring fertilization to maximize flower production. You’ll have to water container plants more often than in-ground plants; water thoroughly until the excess drains at the bottom.
