Purple Mystery Crepe Myrtle

 

Family: Lythraceae
USDA Zone: 7-10
Full sun: Blooms best in full sun (6 hours or more a day)
Crepe myrtles are among the most popular and satisfactory of plants for Florida: bright summer flowers, attractive bark, and sometimes brilliant red fall foliage. The flowers attract bees and butterflies, which makes it a great choice for helping pollinators.
Crepe myrtles bloom on new wood and should be gently pruned in winter or early spring. General rules are to remove little suckers on main trunks, crossing branches, and branches growing toward the center of the plant. If you want to show the bare trunks, gradually remove side branches up to a height of 4-6ft. During the blooming season, clipping off spent flowers often will promote a second round of blooming.
Crepe myrtles are usually not bothered by deer.
Crape myrtles’ seedpods can stain concrete, so please take this into consideration when choosing a planting site.
