Why wait for colorful crape myrtle blooms' Bright pink flowers appear weeks earlier than other dark foliage varieties, and rebloom without the need for deadheading, filling your summer with color that pops in front of black foliage. This compact, dwarf variety is perfect for smaller landscapes, or plant en masse for a dramatic statement. Deciduous.
