About Fauriei Hybrid Crape Myrtles

In 1959, Dr. Donald Egolf began a crape myrtle research project at the U.S. National Arboretum to develop crape myrtles that were disease resistant, hardy, true to flower color, and that would repeat bloom.

Germplasm of Lagerstroemia fauriei was collected in Japan by Dr. John Creech and distributed to the U.S. National Arboretum. This material was discovered to be resistant to powdery mildew; a disease known to inflict many varieties of crape myrtle, and to possess a unique, heritable, dark brown trunk color. L. fauriei was incorporated into the research program with great success. Since then, twenty "Fauriei Hybrid" crapemyrtle cultivars have been released!




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing only 2 to 3 feet tall and wide, Pocomoke is ideal for use as an accent in smaller garden spaces or in groupings or mass plantings in sunny landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Excellent as a solor or combined with other plants in pots, planters and other containers. A fine addition to pink color gardens, perennial gardens, rock gardens and cottage gardens.

Spacing Recommendations:  2 to 2.5 apart for borders or mass plantings, 5 feet or more apart for space between plants.






Cultural Preferences

The Pocomoke Dwarf Crape Myrtle grows well most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and as much sun as you can provide. No pruning necessary however plants can be lightly seared in late winter for shaping purposes.
