Purple Crepe Myrtle – Lagerstroemia Indica

Purple Crepe Myrtle - Lagerstroemia Fauriei
The Purple Crepe Myrtle is one of the most vibrant additions you can make to any garden or yard. As it's name suggests, the tree boasts an amazing array of purple flowers all summer long. Planting one ensures that you will be provided a wonderful, and colorful, new plant every time summer time rolls around.

For those looking to attract butterflies, dragonflies, and even hummingbirds, the Purple Crepe Myrtle is perfect for you. All of them and more have been known to take a real interest in the vibrant flowers produced by the plant. Another perk is that they are resistant to deer, and rabbits, so nothing to worry about there.

The Purple Crepe Myrtle trees can get quite tall, at anywhere from 10 to even 25 feet in height, and they can have about an 8 foot spread as well. They are very popular for lining driveways or being used to border ones back or front yard. But some prefer to have it as a stand-alone in their yard, due to the beautiful colors it provides.

Around Spring time you will start to notice the leaves turning a bronze color, and those same leaves will eventually turn into a dark green come summer time. Eventually, the leaves will turn into orange, yellow, or burgundy around the fall. These trees were bred to last. They are known to be very durable, and drought resistant. They do particularly well in areas that get full sunlight throughout the day, and prefer a more acidic soil for their roots.

If you're looking for a tree that is fairly easy to grow, and maintain, and one that will do well in most, if not all growing conditions, this might be the plant for you. So if you want to add a little color to your yard, or are simply looking for your next addition in your garden, try the Purple Crepe Myrtle. You won't be disappointed.
