Pink crape myrtle tree blossoms


Crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia) are some of the showiest trees in the summer landscape, providing beautiful long-lasting flower clusters well through autumn. The crape myrtle varieties we carry are easy-care and hardy to 5°F to -5°F. Once established, crape myrtles will have low water requirements. We have full-sized trees and dwarf varieties, in single-trunk tree shapes and multi-stem shrubs. Crape myrtles grow in full sun to light shade, and need soil with good drainage. Be sure  water deeply and regularly in their first growing season in order to establish their root systems. Once established, watering frequency can be reduced. Fertilize in the spring. Pruning is often not necessary, but if you choose to, prune in spring after the danger of frost has passed.
