Crape myrtles offer colorful summers and elegant winter silhouettes

Crape myrtles are in their glory during the hot, humid days of summer, but most people do not realize that they make a beautiful four-season statement. In summer, they bring us a splendid variety of colorful blooms, and in winter the smooth bark and graceful natural shape of the tree add a lovely contrast to the many other deciduous trees. To keep the blooms coming all summer, trim off the flower heads as soon as they finish their blooms and a new set of blooms will follow shortly.
