What the hell walmart? Introducing for fall in zone 3, DRUMROLL PLEASE................... a zone 6 crepe myrtle!?!?! Now how should we even think of overwintering without a greenhouse, I'm sure it won't fair well inside. U wonder why people feel like failures trying to garden😏

I drive to Portland (zone8) and see these growing everywhere. We'reso close,yet so far away at zome 5b. They are beautiful but who needs 'em? Hopefully people read labels before they buy. I will add that the east coast usa really knows how to show these off in so many ways. But not where we live tinaaune 🩷

@tinaaune I feel ya! I see a lot of zone 7/8 plants, fruit varieties and veggies that our zone 9 summer will melt! I'm sure a lot of new gardeners get defeated 🥺
