Crape Myrtle


Crape myrtle bushes and trees (Lagerstroemia) are a very popular plant in the southern United States. This is due to being one of the few plants that bloom during the summer! These plants are also very resilient and easy to grow for people with a brown thumb. Crape myrtles provide great shade and color to any landscape all summer long.  Also, as growers have introduced new varieties to the market, more cold hardy varieties have been introduced. You can now grow these plants up to growing zone 6!

 

Most crape myrtles grow in full sun, and perform the best when they receive at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. These are also heat and drought tolerant, which makes them a great fit for the southern states. Make sure the plants are watered once or twice a week the first year though, until they are established.
