You typically see Crape Myrtles standing tall as hearty street trees, peeking over fences in well-manicured neighborhoods, and providing lush backdrops for business center flower beds. Say hello to Sacramento Weeping Crape Myrtle (Lagerstromia indica 'Sacramento')! But maybe you don't have that much room?

The big clusters of rose-pink blooms droop on weeping stems that form 1-2 feet in height and sprawl politely 2-3 feet wide. Pollinators and Hummingbirds adore these full-sized Myrtle blooms that last and last!

This lovely shrub may be weeping and a true dwarf, but it doesn't skimp on any of the traits so beloved in its bigger brothers. Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 6 to 10, Sacramento soaks up the sun and heat!

Planting and Application:

Sacramento displays excellent performance in containers! Porch and patios look incredible with these spilling over their planter sides, and brimming over urns on your front porch! The dwarf size also means small properties, courtyards, and urban postage stamp gardens in the sun!

The rambling form is great as a groundcover and as a front-of-the-border plant to edge your landscaping beds! Let these lower-growing Crape Myrtles ramble down hard-to-mow hillsides and cascade over the tops of retaining walls and throughout Rock Gardens.

Plant these vibrant bloomers in Cottage gardens and pollinator plantings or as facer plants along the front of an existing Crape Myrtle hedge!

  • True Dwarf Weeping Form & Full-Sized Flowers!
  • Luscious Rose-Pink Flowers
  • Rich Green Leaves & Arching Stems
  • Pollinator Friendly
  • Great in Containers, Facer Plants, Edging & Low Hedges

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Crape Myrtles need full sun for the most blooms and strongest growth. Any well-drained location with regular moisture is ideal for your new shrubs, but once established, these flowering shrubs handle some drought. But for best results, provide supplemental moisture during extended periods of hot dry weather. Topdress the soil with a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch to hold in moisture and enrich the soil. Crape Myrtles rebloom in late summer if the first flush of flowers is deadheaded. Prune your shrubs in the early spring before growth starts since they bloom on new wood.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Any Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture & Drought Tolerant Once Established
  • Prune Early Spring - Blooms On New Wood
  • Pest & Disease Resistant!

No matter the size of your garden, you can have Crape Myrtles blooming and thriving! Order Sacramento Weeping Crape Myrtle today from Nature Hills!
