Purple Blooms All Summer Long

The Crape Myrtle is a deciduous shrub that provides delightful purple color all summer long.  Plant one in your ornamental bed or anywhere you’d enjoy enduring color.
The best feature of the Crape Myrtle is certainly the impressive purple display it enacts each year.  Beginning in early summer and continuing into the fall, your Crape Myrtle will dazzle you with its purple blossoms that appear in large clusters at the tips of its branches. 

Hummingbirds, dragonflies and butterflies will love your yard, but you won’t have to worry about deer having the same interest.  When the crepe-like flowers fall, the brown capsules of the fruit remain, providing another decorative feature of the plant. 
Crape Myrtle grows 10-20 feet in height with an 8-10 feet spread.  It won’t give you any trouble if you chose to prune it to a small shape, and it’s drought tolerant and quite hardy.  You’ll love how the Crape Myrtle seems to be always awash in color. 

Even the leaves start out as a charming bronze in the spring.  They then transition into a verdant green that endures throughout the summer months.  When fall arrives your Myrtle will once again immerse itself in color as its leaves transform into brilliant reds and yellows. 
The Crape Myrtle has something to offer whatever the season, and it will certainly offer you enjoyment for years to come.

Patience Pays Off! Review by EsterA
Nature Hills waited until it was time to plant for me in the midwest to ship it, so be patient. My crape myrtle showed up at my door in a really long box. I wasn’t sure what to expect but a few months into the spring it started showing life. I never expected blooms the first year but they started showing up this summer. It’s now late September and beautiful purple blooms still cover the tree! I was very surprised and I love it. Just be patient when it’s planted.

I like purple - this doesn't disappoint! Review by color fan
My purple crape myrtle tree was well packaged and arrived in great shape. I followed the planting instructions and so far the tree has done really well.
Stunning! Review by Sam
LOVE this tree. It has grown really fast, it is stunning in bloom and I love that the purple is a more rare color of Crape Myrtle.
