    This plant is good. I like it. I thought it was “great” but it is actually crepe. Good for the French people

    What a great size the trees were on arrival! They were totally dormant, of course, and seemed to take forever to leaf out. But leaf out they did, and now all four are happily growing. These are really good trees at a great price. Thank you for the good service and great product!

Crepe Myrtle Shrubs Information


The crepe myrtle is one of the most beautiful plants, and it originates from Asia. As the years have gone by, it has become an increasingly popular choice of hedge throughout the United States, due to its beauty. People will mainly see the crepe myrtle as famous within the Southern climates. There is a wide selection of colors for the crepe myrtle, which include:

Red
Pink
White
Purple

Season When Crepe Myrtle Plants Bloom

 

What makes the crepe myrtle a popular shrub is that when they bloom, they bloom for between 60-120 days making it one of the world's most extended blooming trees. A person can extend the red, pink, white, and purple blooming by doing what is referred to as deadheading. This is where the dead blossoms are removed from the tree. This can lead to a second or even a third round of blooming.

What Can Crepe Myrtle Shrubs Be Used For?

Crepe myrtle shrubs can be used for a decorative border or even a privacy hedge. One of the great things about this shrub is that it does not mind being confined to tight spaces, so it would also be great for being used within tight spaces. It is a high shrub that would look amazing when greeting your company as they are driving onto your property. Another one of the great things about the crepe myrtle is that, besides being a shrub that blooms for an extended period of time, it is also a hardy and highly disease resistant plant. People will also find that it is a fast grower. The crepe myrtle can grow several feet within a single growing season.

What Needs To Be Kept In Mind

The one thing that people need to keep in mind with the crepe myrtle is that this shrub should not be over fertilized. Over-fertilizing this plant will lead to fresh foliage and fewer flowers.

Hardy Zones

The crepe myrtle is the type of plant that does excellently within the hardy zones seven and nine. The one thing that needs to be kept in mind is that the crepe myrtle often does not survive the harsher winters of zone seven. Crepe myrtles are plants that love the warmer climates, but they might not be the best hedge for the colder climates.

Soil Requirements

When it comes to the soil requirements for the crepe myrtle, the thing that a person has to keep in mind is that a soil pH should be between 5.0 and 6.5 for the best results.

When To Plant

Knowing when to plant is essential if a person wants the best results with their crepe myrtle. An individual should plant their crepe myrtle four weeks before the first frost in the fall of the year. When watering this plant, it is best to use a hose and not a sprinkler.

The crepe myrtle will reach a maximum mature height of around 20 to 30 feet. This is a large shrub when it reaches its mature height. However, there are different varieties of crepe myrtle, and an individual can get a plant of smaller height if they desire. Choosing a type that does not require as much pruning ensures that an individual gets the best results if they are new to shrubs.
