    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Tinykroft. Thank you for your question. According to the description from the BAUCOMS NURSERY supplying the 3 Gal. 3 Gal. Purple Magic plant is hardy in USDA zones: 7-9. It may be possible to grow the crape myrtle in Pennsylvania's zone 7. For colder areas, it may be possible to keep it alive in the winter months if covered and heavily mulched at the base. https://gilmour.com/pennsylvania-planting-zones#:~:text=Pennsylvania%20planting%20zones%20are%20mostly,successfully%20planting%20a%20thriving%20garden.

    A:  These plants go dormant in cold weather. Mine looked just like that, but I gave it lots of water for a month and it looks good now.

      A:  Most likely yes. If you are in Zone 7a Crape Myrtles should be fine. Some grow in zone 6 as well. They will appreciate the moist heat.

            I purchased this plant in remembrance of my late but GREAT Grandmother Mollie... The plant arrived and I too was super excited to receive it and plant it in the perfect spot in my backyard... I only hope that this miniature plant will thrive and mature into the tree described ...

              The picture of this product is very deceptive. I thought I'd receive a plant with considerable growth of about 1 to 2 feet that would be suitable for first year flowering and display. Instead, I received a single stem and growth less than 6 inches. I never would have ordered this product if I'd know what I was going to receive. I recommend paying more and going with a better distributor other than First Editions. Or buy local so you have the plant in hand. I'm very disappointed. This product has not met my expectations.
