to red to white, with almost every shade in between
Crapemyrtles are a valuable landscape plant that can be used as a shrub or small tree, ranging in size from 18 inches to over
25 feet. As an asset to almost any landscape, the Crapemyrtle is a very beautiful specimen shrub or tree, often used in
groups under planted with a ground cover. The dark green ground cover contrasts the gray to tan shades of the handsome
bark. The smaller varieties of Crapemyrtle can be used as hedges, screens, or in masses. Planted in this manner,
Crapemyrtles offer a grand display of color throughout the summer months.
Crapemyrtle must be grown in full sun for satisfactory flowering and to reduce disease problems. While it will tolerate a wide
range of soil conditions once established, crapemyrtle does not thrive in a very wet location.
Crape myrtles are chiefly known for their colorful and long-lasting flowers. Most species of Lagerstroemia have sinewy,
fluted stems and branches with a mottled appearance that arises from having bark that sheds throughout the year. Colors
vary from deep purple to red to white, with almost every shade in between.
