The Q&A Archives: Mature height for Lagerstroemia indica 'Monum'
Question: I recently purchased the above Crape Myrtle because I wanted one with
purple blossoms and reached a height of 6-8 feet. I was told by the
folks where I purchased it that this one would fill my needs. However, after reading the Monrovia tag more closely, I see that this
one grows to only 5'. Will this plant make it to 6-8 feet with a little TLC?
Answer: Lagerstroemia indica 'Monum' can be maintained at 5' but it will grow slightly taller if not pruned. I think it will reach at least 6' without problem. Best wishes with your new tree!
