| I live in climate zone 5B but just couldn't resist purchasing a red rocket crape Myrtle. It has done beautifully through the summer, but can anybody advise me as how to try to protect it in the winter months to come?

|Just put down a thick layer of mulch and it will come back next year unless we have a really harsh winter. It will die back to the ground most likely but will come back if you give it a nice thick layer of shredded leaves or wood mulch.|

|I would cover it in a BIG pile of leaves after it defoliates but before it gets really cold at night. It might stay alive higher up that way.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.
