A Secret About Crepes

Sorry but I am not talking about the dessert crepes, but the tree. I have one crepe myrtle tree in my yard that is full grown, in the photo above. I had three more planted a few weeks ago and cannot wait to see them grow into mature trees as well. They are all this crimson red color that is stunning, in my opinion. I read the other day a secret about these trees I had never thought of or heard of before. I will share with you: 

Plant 3 different colored Crapes in the same hole with the root-balls touching. Take a piece of string and tie the 3 stems together so they are touching. In 2-3 years the stems will actually fuse together to become 1 tree with 3 different colored flowers. Your neighbors will wonder how you got a tree with 3 different colored flowers.
