How to Grow and Care for Petite Snow™ Crape Myrtle Tree

Petite Snow Crape Myrtle Tree (Lagerstroemia indica ‘Monow’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 7-9 outdoors


Crapes are full sun lovers, so try and find a spot where they will get as much as possible. They also prefer well-drained soil.

Dig your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Lightly comb your hands over the root ball to free up the roots a bit before planting. Place your tree in the hole and make sure that the root crown (where the root ball meets the trunk(s) of the tree) is level with the soil surface. Mulch the area around the tree to conserve water moisture and deter competing weeds.


Myrtles are drought tolerant but may need a bit more attention with watering during the hot summer season. Depending on your soil, you may need to water more frequently. If you’re not sure when to water, however, simply check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down.


Apply a complete, balanced, slow-release fertilizer formula in the early spring and summer seasons.


Remove all but 4 to 5 strong trunks and then remove the lateral branches around the bottom half of the tree. To encourage branching, make your cuts on the longer, leggy limbs.
