Bare Root Liners

In addition to field-grown trees, McMakin Farms grows crape myrtle bare root liners. The liners are grown as a two-year root and a one-year top. After the first year the crapes are planted, we cut them down to the ground. This allows for the canes to grow to be strong and sturdy in the second year of growth.

Canes are selected for uniformity and strength. Each liner will be multi-stem having 3-5 canes. The liners are suitable to pot in a 15 to 25-gallon container or can go straight into the field.
