1. I love crepe myrtles also - they are beautiful, drought tolerant, and one of the few plants

that do well in these continuous 100 temps in Central Texas.

5. They also grow great in the 80+% humidity and high 90's of No. FL.

3. About 20 years ago I planted a Crepe Myrtle by my front gate.

The tag said it was a dwarf plant that would grow 10 - 12 ft. It is now approximately 30 ft and blooms without fail. It has 8 trunks. Seven of them have pale pink blooms, but one has deep rose colored blooms. Unlike other Crepe Myrtles, it has never grown any suckers at its base and all the trunks are about 15 ft tall before they branch out. It recently shed its bark so the trunks are a reddish brown color right now.

4. WOW!

'Mine' is tall too, and blossoms way up, NOT profuse. As usual, should do more work for a better pic; only a couple trunks.
