Crape myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) comes in numerous cultivars, which feature flowers in lavender, pink, purple, red or white. The crape myrtles that bloom in mid to late summer are especially valuable for the landscape’s “dog days,” but there are also some that bloom in early summer. Crape myrtles can grow to a height of 35 feet with a spread just as wide, depending on the cultivar.
These lovely dogwood tree cultivars offer four-season garden beauty.
