The Crape Myrtle is one of the easiest to grow plants. It grows well in ordinary soil conditions that is well drained. Their large display of brilliant pink, white, rose or purple flowers blossom in late summer, at a time that not much else is in bloom. Their foliage is deep green that turns into a stunning display of fall colors, in October and November. They tend to grow to be about 6-12′ high and the same wide, so watch where you place them.
