Greetings. I'm considering a dwarf crepe myrtle such as cherry dazzle or razzle dazzle to install permanently in a pot. And wonder if this is a good option. The pots are about 20" height and width. I'm looking for a narrow privacy screening compliment to a small row of sky pencil hollies, thinking of anchoring each end of the sky pencil hollies with super simple pots and putting the dward crepe myrtles for beauty & interst, and easy care. Also believe I can have irrigation drip added to the pots to ensure regualr watering. I live just north of Atlanta GA....zone 7. I'd appreciate your thoughts and suggestions. Getting excited about finally doing our tiny yard after six years of empty space! Thanks - Cindy

    The dwarf crape myrtles are a wonderful, and underused container plant. For your application, they should provide great summer color, and can always be under-planted with additional selections such as pansies or violas in the winter and blue daze, verbena, or purslane for the summer.
