Hello! I’m the Crape Myrtle Guy! Clint Cotten.
I began my business with 100 crapes from Janice Myers for my personal use. The ones I did not need I decided to sell. I found some containers for growing crapes, potted them, and created an ad on Craigslist to sell the crapes. I sold out the first weekend!!
High School Teacher and Former Football Coach: My ‘real job’ is teaching high school math, business, and accounting. I was a football coach for almost 20 years and was lucky enough to coach several elite NFL players. It was a fun ride…
I have a master’s degree in personal finance and a help families save, plan, and invest through my other website, Game Plan Insurance.
I love working in the yard, teaching, coaching, fishing, and crape myrtle trees!
Janice Myers: I contacted Janice again… and again..and again. After a few purchases Janice helped me get started on my own. She has been a huge help to me and I really owe her big time for getting me started. She pretty much showed me… well, she emailed me everything I needed to grow and sell my own crapes. I then started adding more varieties and learned to propagate my own. Read my page on crape propagation!
Lee Ann Torrans at http://leeanntorrans.com provides all my images. We work closely together to be certain that the Crape Myrtle colors are just right so you will know exactly what you are ordering. I highly recommend her site and her images.
Neil Sperry: I rely on Neil Sperry’s size and attributions to describe my crapes and the zones in which they will grow. Here in Texas, he’s the Master Tree Guy! I recommend his Crape Myrtle Poster as the ultimate authority!
