Lavender Crepe Myrtle can be used as a hedge
The Lavender Crepe Myrtle is part of the Lagerstroemia species of woody trees and, as its name suggests, blooms lush lavender flowers. It is a very fast-growing tree that may even grow from seed to bloom in a season. The purplish lavender flowers bear crimped frilly petals resembling crepe paper blooming 120 days out of the year, giving the trees 4-5months of rich color great for vase flower arrangements. Its leaves are opposite and straightforward and vary from 2–8 inches. On average, it reaches a mature height of 20 feet with a similar-sized spread. At the same time, hundreds of years of cultivation have led to many different cultivars, including dwarf cultivars which may grow as 4-6 foot tall shrubs 3-4 feet in the spread but in the wild, heights are varied and may be as short as 1 foot to as high as 100 feet tall. This woody tree’s bark sheds through the year, giving it a mottled appearance. The Lavender Crepe Myrtle loves the sun and heat requiring a hot summer to bloom successfully with abundant flower clusters. While it is a drought-resistant tree, it is also frost-resistant and may grow in mild winter areas. In the winter, they are sometimes pruned to a bare trunk by gardeners, as in colder areas, they may die off from harsh winters but regrow from the well-developed root system and trunk. They are popular in landscaping with a variety of uses. Hedges and borders are one such widespread use as they can be planted in rows. Alternatively, they may be used as sunshades; they may also be placed beside paths or even simply as specimen plants for their natural beauty. Their color makes them easily stand out against fresh green foliage. They are planted in the early spring and, once planted, need to be watered well around five times a week, which will be lessened during colder, wetter weather.
