Wow, thanks for the info....if I have any of  this "Lagerstroemia indica" left over after the fire pit use, can I use it in a smoker.....These trees grow everywhere around here in Virginia.

  But Crape Myrtle isn't Myrtle, despite the name. Crape, or Crepe, Myrtle 
is "Lagerstroemia indica", a member of the Lagerstroemia family. Myrtlewood 
is "Myrtus communis" which is an entirely different plant/tree. And the Myrtlewood
from Oregon is an entirely different tree also, it is Umbellularia californica.
Called Oregon Myrtlewood in Oregon, it is called the California Bay Laurel in
California. They both are member of the Laurel tree family.
