The Red Crepe Myrtle is a stunning flowering tree that is just beautiful no matter where it is planted. This plant can be considered a significant shrub or a small tree. They will also accept trimming well if a smaller size is desired. These are easy to grow and very hardy. They do adapt well to most soil types but prefer moisture with good drainage available. These are very low maintenance plants and will not require much effort on the part of the gardener to keep them looking great. 

 

Red Crepe Myrtle

 

The Red Crepe Myrtle is a summer flowering, deciduous tree. This is a favorite southern tree due to its easy maintenance and tolerance to dry conditions that reach even 100 degrees. Its attractiveness is only further enhanced by its extended flowering period through the summer. Large groups of brilliant red flowers appear early in the summer and continue their showy display well into the fall. After the flowers fall, brown seed pods remain giving the tree winter interest as well. The bark also proves to be an exciting point in your garden. It peels away during the winter showing off beautiful grey and brown shades hidden underneath. These beauties are also popular hedge choices and when planted in groups can give you an exciting and stunning focal point or border year round.
