Pink Crepe Myrtle
Pink Crepe Myrtle: It stands at just over twenty feet, but the pink crepe myrtle is, indeed, a deciduous shrub and not a tree. TN Nursery customers go wild over this species, and we sell hundreds of crepe myrtles in an array of vivid colors every year.
Pink crepe myrtle will bloom during the mid-summer, providing true pink color after many other blooming trees finish their seasonal display of color.
While the pink crepe myrtle is native to Asia--China and Korea--American gardeners love this shrub.
What's not to love?
It grows well in the warmer USDA growing zones; blooms for several weeks in the summertime; is mold-, mildew-, and disease-resistant. Finally, they are cold- and heat-hardy. They are prevalent in the mid-south, where winter weather is frigid, and summers bring scorching heat.
The Pink Crepe Myrtle Will Steal Your Heart
The eye-popping shade of pure pink adorns the landscape across the south during the peak heat. Large clusters of petite pink florets give the appearance of one enormous flower. The blooms last a month to six weeks, making them coveted by gardeners.
The shrub has several upright branches with slight dips and curves that make a graceful shape. Some gardeners prune it during its early development to make it appear more tree-like. On the other hand, others allow it to follow its own course and form a bushier shape.
The bright green oval leaves are small (under two inches long) but plentiful. They grow into a dense, well-shaded canopy.
The bark is light and has a slightly rough texture--not entirely smooth, but also not rough. The bark sloughs off during the summer, especially after the blossoms finish their display.
Those beautiful pink crepe myrtle flowers turn to an abundance of one-inch or smaller brown pods that provide many seeds.
Pink Crepe Myrtle Attracts Wildlife Galore
Pollinators find the breathtaking, bright pink blossoms irresistible. You will likely notice pollinating insects, like bees, moths, dragonflies, and butterflies, feasting on the nectar of your pink crepe myrtle.
During the cold months of winter, wild birds rely on crepe myrtle pods for nutrition. You will see them working to crack open the pods and extract those seeds--it will be fun to watch.
