Lagerstroemia indica 'Little Chief' - crape myrtle

Lagerstroemia indica 'Little Chief'; Common Names: crape myrtle, crepe myrtle; Family: Lythraceae (loosestrife Family); The deciduous crape myrtle is among the longest blooming trees in existence with flowering periods lasting from 60-120 days. If you do not have room inside or the location for a normal Crepe Myrtle outside, then this cultivar originating out of America, is an excellent alternative. Little Chief is a dwarf form of lagerstroemia indica growing only to a height of 3 feet with shades of pink to mauve flowers. An outstanding houseplant, patio plant, bonsai or landscape plant in mild climates
