One of Texas' beauties, the Crepe Myrtle, adds color during the hot days of summer. Ranges of color include red, white, pink, and lavender. Crepe Myrtle's small leaf turns yellow and red in the fall. One of the most beautiful characteristics is its slick-light colored bark. Its best use is a small specimen tree in full sun. We have this tree available for installation in North Texas via our Frisco Tree Farm.

There are many species of Crapemyrtle and most of these are native to Asia. We typically grow two different species here in the United States. The common Crapemyrtle, Lagerstroemia indica, was introduced in 1747 and has been planted all over the South. You can find many aged trees around old home sites. Over the years there have been literally hundreds of selections named with variations of flower colors, growth habits and mature sizes.
