Several years ago, I bought a dwarf weeping crepe myrtle. It's very small, about 1 1/2 X 1 1/2 ft. It has deep pink flowers. I can't remember the name & the tag is long gone. I think it was a Monrovia plant. I'd love to have some more of these little crepes, but can't find them, and don't know the name to ask for. Can you help me? Thanks.

The smallest crepe myrtles in the Monrovia catalog are in the four foot range or can be kept that small with pruning. (A dwarf crepe myrtle would be in the three to five foot size range.) I did however find a catalog source for what are described as miniature weeping crepe myrtles that sound like the plant you have. (I have no experience dealing with this nursery, so all I know is what is on their web site.) I hope this helps!
