Design IdeasThis lovely large Crape Myrtle is a popular, high-profile street tree that offers civic beauty without the litter and invasiveness of more commonly-used street trees. An equally good shade tree for city yards with a bonus of flowers and fall color. Its size makes it perfect for light shading around decks and patios, to dress up lawn-edge planters, or as a single stunning tree for the front yard. Frame a long driveway with them for a formal statement. Best of all, it is reasonably drought resistant.
