White Crepe Myrtle - Lagerstroemia
Also known as the Natchez Crepe Myrtle, this tree has flowers that are a snowy white color. They are known to bloom for the whole summer (June to September) and have leaves that turn a range of shades from red to orange in the autumn. White Crepe Myrtles also have cinnamon-colored bark, making them somewhat unique. They can grow at least three to five feet per year, and reach an average height ranging from 20 to 30 feet, 20 feet in width. Natchez Crepe Myrtles are tolerant in many climates but need full sunlight and only occasional watering once established, unless there are high temperatures. Crepe myrtles are one of the most popular plants in both residential and commercial landscape settings. Perhaps it is because they bloom for long periods of time and are easy to grow. White crepe myrtles are often used along driveways or sidewalks as well as specimen trees as focal points in the yard. White crepe myrtles received their name for the thin tissue flowers they produce, which resembles crepe paper. These can be used as trees in the landscape or pruned into shrubs. This deciduous plant is a favorite choice for home gardeners because it flowers early in the spring and continues until the fall. The blooms appear in clusters of 6 to 18 inches, with dark green foliage. In addition to beautiful flowers, white crepe myrtles have ornamental bark that makes it pleasing to the eye. You can plant it near entrances, porches or walkways to add curb appeal. If you prefer to prune it into a shrub, the crepe myrtle can be placed just about anywhere in your yard. In addition to being tolerant of dry conditions, this plant is also known for being resistant to diseases and pests, making it relatively low maintenance for home or beginning gardeners.
