Special Southern tree:

K. Crape myrtle ‘White Chocolate’ (1) suitable for Zones 7-10, this beauty is small-sized at 8 ft high x 8 ft wide. Mine is still small because I keep it tipped after blooms have finished to give it a mounding shape for the perennial border.

NOTE: Deer resistance varies with herds and food supply. Your experience may be different than mine.
