Crape Myrtle Trees









Crape Myrtle Trees are favorites in southern gardens and landscapes. Because of their heat tolerance, these flowering ornamental trees bloom profusely even during the most intense, humid summer weather. Visit our Flowering Trees Department for more trees to brighten your landscape. Flowering Shrubs are often used where space is limited and trees cannot be planted.

In zones 5 and 6 (depending on the variety), hardier crape myrtle trees may die back to the ground in winter to re-emerge in spring.... As a result, a Crape Myrtle Tree that is listed as growng in a colder zone and grows to a 20 to 30' tree in warmer climates may remain as 5 to 10 foot tall shrubs or small trees in the cooler growing zones. But you still get to enjoy its fantastic flower clusters!

Tips for growing crape myrtle trees:

  • Plant in full sun
  • (in zones 5 and 6) wrap for winter protection
  • Keep dead, damaged and touching branches pruned out
  • Prune back approximately 1/3 for new season growth
  • Brightest and fullest blooms are on new season growth
