I recently purchased and planted a Mandi Crape Myrtle from Home Depot in Oklahoma City. I was told by the sales people and by the tag on the plant that it has an average height of 20 feet and width of 15 feet. However, all the information I can find on the Internet regarding Mandi Crape Myrtle indicates it grows only 8 to 10 feet tall. Can anyone advise me what is correct? I purposely bought the plant so it would grow to a height of 15 to 20 feet. Do I have the wrong plant - or is the information from Home Depot correct? Thanks.
