PART I: About Crepe Myrtles a.k.a. Crape Myrtles

Crepe MyrtleThis is a common plant in League City, TX and much of the south. This is a plant of choice to add color multiple times through late spring and summer when pruned properly. It is bare in the winter...

This tree comes in a variety of sizes to fit your landscaping plans. It must be pretty inexpensive because you will find it in nearly every neighborhood and at many homes. It seems to be a choice plant for builders that have homes ready for sale in spring, summer, and early fall... but, builders typically shy away from using it in winter because of it's dormant leafless state! I have seen some crepe myrtles as tall as about 50 feet, and they look very impressive!

"Lagerstroemia ,[1] commonly known as Crape myrtle or Crepe myrtle, is a genus of around 50 species of deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs native to the Indian subcontinent, southeast Asia, northern Australia and parts of Oceania, cultivated in warmer climates around the world. It is a member of the Lythraceae, which is also known as the Loosestrife family. The genus is named after the Swedish merchant Magnus von Lagerström, who supplied Carolus Linnaeus with plants he collected." [SOURCE:]
