The Complete List

As we prepared our comprehensive poster giving details of each known variety of crape myrtles in commerce today our first task was to construct the complete list. For example, many varieties seemed to be very similar, if not identical. Others appeared in historic nursery catalogs from many years ago but did not seem to be in production today. We contacted almost 100 wholesale growers and all major botanic gardens and research institutions where work is conducted with crape myrtles and this is the list that resulted.

Our full-color 14 x 30-inch poster outlines all the details of each of these varieties, from height and width, to flower color, fall foliage color and trunk character. Years of introduction are identified along with each type’s USDA Hardiness Zone and powdery mildew resistance. You can order the poster in our Online store. All proceeds from its sale go to the work of the CMT Foundation.
