    Pink Crepe Myrtle

    Pink crepe myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) bushes abound across the country and can be found growing everywhere from highway medians to state parks to front lawns and courthouse lawns. Their delicate-looking crepe paper blooms, colorful fall foliage, interesting trunks and hardy nature make them a highly prized shrub for growing in drought-prone regions or landscapes that have poor soil. Use these tips for successful planting and growing of pink crepe myrtle bushes.

    Planting Location
    Pink crepe myrtle bushes thrive in direct sunlight and are hardy in U.S. growing zones 2-6, with cold hardy varieties thriving up to zone 9. The bush is not picky about soil conditions, but won’t grow well in heavy clay unless the soil is amended with organic matter.
    Since the mature size of crepe myrtles vary greatly, it’s important to read the plant label and buy the appropriate size bush for the space in which it be grown. Dwarf bushes will reach a mature size of about 4 feet tall and 4 feet wide. A Standard size bush will reach up to 30 feet in height and 10-12 feet in width if left unpruned.
    Pink crepe myrtle is typically planted as an anchor shrub in a flower garden or a row is used to line a driveway or delineate a property line.

    Bloom Time
    Pink crepe myrtles will produce their delicate flowers in mid-summer and will bloom until late summer. The bush also produces berries (non-edible) that attract a variety of birds.
    The summer blooms are followed by a spectacular fall foliage display.

    Pruning is recommended for crepe mrytles to keep them looking neat and confined to their allotted growing space. They are rapid growing bushes that will need maintenance pruning yearly and a severe pruning every 5-10 years, depending on variety and space. 
    The bush develops many side shoots during its lifetime and these will need to be pruned off throughout the growing season. If allowed to grow, the side shoots make the bush look unkempt and will take away moisture and nutrients from the main trunk.
