My favorite Tree [this week] is: Crape Myrtle

2_crapesCrape Myrtle, Lagerstroemia indica

Crape Myrtles trees are ideally suited for the Lowcountry. There are many different varieties, each variety has a unique color and will grow to be a specific size. When selecting a Crape Myrtle it is important to consider the maximum height you would want for your landscape. Summer blooms are white, red, pink, or purple.
