Solving the Mystery of the Black Diamond Crepe Myrtle Series

This newly introduced Crepe Myrtle exploded onto the scene last year and had everyone talking about it. But is this really a new variety, or an older, already existing variety that has been repackaged and rebranded? I investigated the situation, and what I found will surprise you.

I just scraped the bark on one side and dipped in Clonex gel. I put this in my EZ Clone propagator with just water. I have an aquarium light over it. It's pretty easy. You can also make one of these machines easily.

This sounds like something that would be an interesting and useful tutorial for our ideas feature.

Thanks. I've been posting it in the Propagation forum. When I get done, I'll turn it into a idea.
