  • Best pot for crepe myrtle

    Created by robert on

    We are interested in planting crepe myrtle on a roof garden in the Baltimore area. We would bring the plants in for the winter. Is the Smart Pot a good container choice? Would it need a support structure? If so, do you supply them?

    Robert –

    Smart Pots were originally developed for the nursery business and would support crepe myrtle. However, I would suggest a more permanent pot/ planter for a shrub that can grow 10′ tall and 6′ wide — maybe a large terra cotta pot on a movable plant caddy. Size up 2-3 times the width of the plant’s original container.


    Hope this helps!
