Purple Crepe Myrtle is a very hardy and drought tolerant plant.

The Purple Crepe Myrtle gets its name from the beautiful crepe-like texture purple flowers that bloom from early summer until fall. The bronze color leaves in the spring change to bright green in the summer. The fruit is a green capsule shape that ripens to dark brown or black. Dragonflies, butterflies, and hummingbirds love the Purple Crepe Myrtle. It grows to a height of 10 to 20 feet and has 8 to 10 feet spread. It grows best in zones 6 through 10. The Purple Crepe Myrtle is adaptable to just about any soil as long as it is moist. The scientific name for the Purple Crepe Myrtle is Lagerstroemia Indica Purpurea.

The Purple Crepe Myrtle is loved for its beautiful purple flowers.

There are many shades of purple that are available for this bush from a light purple to a deep midnight shade of purple. The Purple Crepe Myrtle reaches a mature height of somewhere between 10 to 20 feet. Its mature height range places the purple crepe into the bush category. The spread of this bush is 6 to 8 feet. However if using the shrubs to create a hedge, use a range of 4 to 5 feet.

Though the bush is recommended for the hardy zones 6 - 10, it is a bush that can withstand the heat as well of the change of seasons. It is for this reason that it can withstand the hardy zones of the south as well as those in the heat of the west. It is a relatively maintenance free bush that as a blooming time if any in the summer. The lovely purple flowers have a long flowering time if any and last until the late fall.
