The smaller varieties are ideal for planting close to the house
Crepe Myrtles are best grown in full sun and well drained soils with regular water.
Flowering may be reduced if planted in areas with substantial shade. Crepe Myrtles (Lagerstroemia indica, Lagerstroemia fauriei) are hardy to USDA zone 7 and 6 respectively and may show damage if the winter is unusually cold. Crepe Myrtles are not poisonous, so they will not harm your pets.
