Flower panicles are small, but they form in abundance over the perimeter of the plant, creating a great show. But the greatest feature is the fact that each panicle of blooms opens, then petals drop cleanly as the flowers age, then a new set of flower buds form on the same panicle. There are no seed capsules produced. As a result, from late June to October, the plant has a constant flower show. Double Feature™ is a classic in that if you liked the first flower show in late spring, just watch and Double Feature™ will Play It Again® and again all season long. FEATURE #2 Double Feature™ is a semi-dwarf that fits many landscape applications. The parent plant, at age eight years was 5 ½ feet tall and 5 ½ feet in diameter as a dense perfect ball, yet the plant had never been pruned. Mature height is anticipated to be about eight feet. Double Feature™ fits into a landscape niche, larger than some of the dwarf crapemyrtle, yet smaller than tree forms and in many landscape situations, should require little if any pruning. US PPAF
