Does anybody know the names of these Crepe Myrtles?
This one was supposed to be Victor Herbert but there is no such thing.
It has a Violet Red tint to it.
Note: it's not Victor, I have victor and it is different.

Here's a weeping light pink-white crepe Myrtle.

Here are 3 dwarfs, they are pretty big though.
I thinking the purple one is Baton Rouge.

It can be hard to get an ID on crepe myrtles.

The white is probably Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'Natchez')

A purple dwarf is commonly Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'Zuni')

I have Natchez and it is a true great white, the unknown one is slightly pink.


I also have Zuni and mine are 15-20' tall.
Is Zuni a dwarf? I don't see Zuni listed as a dwarf. Confused

I thought Baton Rouge is a dwarf weeping red, it is on my wish list for our retirement garden, lol
I gave a Zuni to my dil and it is supposed to stay around 10? Every plant I get her has to be purple, lol
I have one but it is a baby but the label said 12

Zuni is a semi-dwarf and should top out at 10 feet tall. Baton Rouge is a very small dwarf (less than 3 feet) with very light lavender blooms.

When we bought them, the tag said 3ft tall.
They are about 5-6ft tall.
They have been in the same place since at least the late 90's, I don't think they are going to get any taller.

Ann,
The red one is about 7-8ft tall.
My Tuscarora is over 20ft, one of my favorite crepe myrtles.

But Ashton, is that red mature yet? Could it be a young Tuscarora? Of course if you have a Tuscarora you can easily compare blooms.

Then it can't be Tuscarora.

Ashton, try these links. I found they have a wealth of information on the different varieties.
For this first one scroll down until you get to the tables that list & describe them.

This is a good link too.
