About Crape Myrtles
Northern gardeners have their lilacs and peonies. They're wonderful plants, but they don't perform well in the hot Texas climate. That's where crape myrtles pick up the pace and brighten our lives from May 'til September. In fact, no flowering shrub in America has as long a blooming season.
Crape myrtles come in all shapes and sizes and they bear five primary flower colors: red, pink, white, lavender and purple. They're drought-tolerant and, while bothered occasionally by insects or diseases, no pest threatens their lives.
All crape myrtles ask is full or nearly full sunlight and then just basic care and attention.
