Crepe Myrtles are popular trees in the South. They are among the welcoming signs of Spring and Summer. They line roadways, public gardens and lawns either in single form or en masse. Their confetti like petals treat us to full blooms in a profuse manner. Crepe myrtles adorn our yards with white, varying shades of pink, purple, lavender, and red flowers. If pruned correctly, their limbs and trunks become living sculptures. The abundance and weight of the blossoms often cause the limbs to bow gracefully and artfully.
