History/Lore

Thanks to his work with crapemyrtle breeding for most of his professional life, Dr. Carl Witcomb -- researcher, author, and professor at the University of Florida and Oklahoma State University for 20 years -- has patented cultivars that are hardy in Zone 6. The dynamite crapemyrtle is one example.
