Florida summers are known to be hot and humid which I don’t like. Even though It’s like living in a steam tent, I like to look at the positive side of things, and there are things I love about summer in central Florida. Previously, I have written about how much I love my tropical frangipani or plumeria blooms in the summer.
Today I’m sharing two more things I love about a Florida summer: blue skies and flowering crepe myrtle trees.
Crepe myrtle trees should be planted in a sunny location in well-drained soil in zones 7 to 9. Crepe myrtle trees should have limited pruning to keep it healthy. The trees come in a variety of sizes and colored blossoms. For more information on growing crepe myrtle trees, see Gardening Know How’s post.
The small crepe myrtle tree in my front yard is covered with bright hot pink flowers. The flowers against the blue sky bring great joy all summer.
