Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Natchez Crepe Myrtle
Natchez Crepe Mrytle is a small tree.
This particular tree has a unique growth pattern that gives it the appearance of being a shrub rather than a tree. The base of the tree is usually significantly shorter than the branches if the base even forms. The branches grow upwards more than outwards and create a thick symmetrical canopy. The matter in which this tree grows, paired with its attractive features, has made it a favorite in private landscaping. It has especially become popular as a natural divider to provide privacy to yards. The beautiful contrast of colors has also made it a favorite as a simple lawn decoration.
Natchez Crepe Myrtle grows in moderately warm climates.
Though the Natchez crepe myrtle is primarily a southern dwelling plant, it can also grow in moderately warm coastal environments. This crepe myrtle grows best in average well-drained soils with plenty of direct sunlight. Once planted, it is best to water the crepe myrtle regularly to help establish a strong root system. Once the root system has developed enough in the soil, the tree doesn't need to be watered that often unless there is intense heat. The tree is relatively easy to care for once it is mature enough, only requiring pruning in late winter. The tree also has adequate resistance to pollutants, diseases, and insects; thus making the tree more durable than its delicate appearance gives off.
