With the summer coming to an end and all our other perennials starting to look pretty sad at least we have these beauties still blooming. These are my husbands favorites. After many trips to Florida and seeing these beauties all over he was determined to try and grow them here in the northeast. We're zone 6 and crepe myrtles are recommended for zones 7 thru 9.
Our's grow as a shrub not a tree but we'll take that! Four years later and they're still growing strong!
These three on the pool deck are Dynamite crepe myrtles
Here's another grouping on our hill. The white is Natchez the light pink is Choctaw and the pink in the back is Miami.
This last one with these beautiful hot pink blooms is called Pink Velour
This is one garden that still looks good. I already started cutting some of the perennials back around the house because the heat this summer really got to them.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a super week!!
