the blooms on this plant remind me of crepe myrtle, but that is where the similarity ends. this is a hedgy shrub, and the trunks are nothing like the crepe myrtles i know.

Yeah, this sure does look like Lagerstroemia
maybe it's not the Lagerstroemia indica/Crepe Myrtle that we most often grow,

that's what i'm thinking zuzu. if it weren't in such a different growth habit, i'd have called it crepe myrtle without hesitation. i'll have to keep researching it, and if you find anything, let me know!

christina, i wouldn't expect you to know most of these since you are so far north! now, just don't ask me to identify a crocus or sugar maple shocked laugh laugh
