Crape Myrtle (Lythraceae) is a fast growing deciduous tree or shrub which is very popular in the South due to its prolific summer flowers, interesting bark, and showy fall colors. I enjoy my crape myrtles in my landscape because just when flowers are starting to fade, the crape myrtles are putting on their show. They are easy care, heat and drought tolerant making them a great addition to your landscape.
Crape Myrtles love full sun – more sun means more blooms. Crape Myrtles are great to line a driveway, back fence or just as a specimen by itself. I like to plant in large flower beds for added structure and height.
Crape Myrtles bloom on new wood and should be pruned in the winter or early spring to shape to desired form and height. Removing basal suckers and side branches up to a height of 4-5 feet will expose the interesting bark on the trunk of the tree.
