Crepe Myrtle Plants are Small to Medium-sized Trees

Crepe Myrtle Plants seem to be everywhere. They line sidewalks and the edges of pastures. Crepe Myrtle Plants beautify people's yards and even the parking lots of shopping malls.

Crepe myrtles are not only easy to grow in these warm climates, but they come in a rainbow of colors. The gardener can choose from pink crepe myrtle, white crepe myrtle, red crepe myrtles, and purple crepe myrtles. The tiny, crinkled flowers come in panicles in the summer and last throughout the Fall.

Even in the Winter, the tree is of interest because of its smooth, mottled bark. This effect comes because the bark sheds all year. The leaves of some cultivars turn maroon or orange-red in the Fall. The tree is native to southeast Asia and first came from China to the southern United States in the late 18th century.

Crepe Myrtle Plants can grow from Hardiness Zone 6 Southward and Attracts Butterflies.

Crepe myrtles can come in dwarf varieties that grow from only about two feet tall to over 100 feet tall, though most trees range from about 15 to 25 feet tall. The tree's fruit is shaped like a green pod that eventually turns brown, dries out, and splits. The seeds are small and winged.

Wide varieties of crepe myrtle are named after Indian tribes. One pink crepe myrtle is called 'Choctaw.' This tree has dark green leaves that turn deep, purplish-red in autumn. The flowers last from mid to late summer. Pretty, the white crepe myrtle is 'Natchez,' which increases and has fiery orange leaves in the Fall. 'Cherokee,' which tends to be more of a shrub than a tree, is one of the red crepe myrtles, while the lovely 'Catawba' is one of the purple crepe myrtles. Its bright green leaves show off the vibrant purple of the blossoms.

Crepe myrtles grow best in a hot, sunny spot on the property. They like moist, well-drained soil. A gardener can propagate the crepe myrtle through cuttings or by seed. The tree should be pruned judiciously, as when it's too dense to promote good airflow through the branches or if branches are rubbing against each other.

Crepe Myrtle Plants can also be part of a butterfly garden, as they can be used as a host plant for some caterpillars.

The wood of crepe myrtles is sometimes used to make furniture and many other implements. Woodworkers like crepe myrtle wood because it has a low cutting resistance and is easy to work with planning, turning, and molding. It also polishes well, dries comfortably, and can accommodate both hand and power tools.

They can grow in many soils, but the results will be more dramatic in well-drained but moist ones simultaneously. The flowers are the most fantastic feature and will vary from pinks, reds, whites, and purples. The blooms will become extraordinarily magnificent and give the tree an elegant appearance. The branches and trunk are also beautiful, will be light in color, and will grow intricately. These trees will add value to a home and even give it some curb appeal.
