Lagerstroemia, commonly known as crepe myrtle, is a genus of around 50 species of deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs native to the Indian subcontinent, southeast Asia, northern Australia, and parts of Oceania, cultivated in warmer climates around the world. It is very popular here in the southeastern USA in growing zones 6 to 10.
When I moved to my home back almost 11 years ago, I fell in love with the large crepe myrtle tree in the back yard. It has light pink flowers. Behind my house is a fence and really huge trees in my neighbor’s yard.
The second year I was in my home, I had to remove a dying tree in the front yard. The next year I planted a new small crepe myrtle with hot pink blossoms. I love that it is covered with flowers each year as it grows.
