Crape myrtle

Asked November 18, 2017, 11:20 AM EST

If I covered one of these bushes really well in the fall, do you think it might survive? I live in southern Minnesota. Thank you. They are so beautiful!

Unfortunate Crape myrtle are only hardy in plant hardiness zone 6-9. Brown County MN is in plant hardiness zone 4B. This plant will not tolerate our winters. You may be able to grow it as a houseplant.
