Lagerstroemia Infinitini® Purple Crapemyrtle Description
Make summer even more colorful with Infinitini® Purple crapemyrtle (Lagerstroemia indica). Proven Winners introduced this unique selection for its ability to bloom like crazy and its useful, low-growing, shrub-like habit. It needs no pruning and can be used so many ways in the landscape: edging, a low hedge, even included in a perennial garden. If you thought you didn’t have room for a big crapemyrtle, the Infinitini series is for you.
Infinitini crapemyrtles were developed in central Pennsylvania and have proven hardy even in USDA zone 6. They are some of the most cold-tolerant crapemyrtles to date! They may die back to the ground in colder areas, but they come roaring back from the roots and go on to bloom fabulously later in summer.

Soil: Moist but well-drained soils are best. Can tolerate some dryness once established.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day).
Space: Plant at least 4' apart.
Fertilizing: Little needed. If desired, fertilize in early spring, once the ground has thawed, with a granular rose fertilizer. A second application may be made in late spring/early summer as well.
Winterizing: A good 2-3" layer of mulch is recommended, USDA zone 6.
Maintenance: Blooms on new wood, so can be safely pruned in spring, though it is rarely necessary, thanks to its tidy, dwarf habit. Dead wood can be removed in spring, once new growth has begun to emerge and it's clear where any dieback may have occurred.
