What Is A Crepe Myrtle Tree?
What are those trees everywhere? #NewToMe
The ones that seem to be blooming ALL. SUMMER. LONG. WOW!
Crepe Myrtle. That’s what.
So What is a Crepe Myrtle?
It’s true they bloom all summer, I’ve seen white, light and dark pink and purple colors. And they are EVERYWHERE down here. I’m pretty sure you’ll never see a Rite Aid landscaped as well as you find ‘em down here.
This is a giant grove of purple ones I pass every day near my house and I can’t get a good picture of just how amazing they are. You have to trust me on this one.
And a neighbor close to my house has this row of several colors blooming on their driveway. #jealous.
And here’s the sad little one in my backyard. It isn’t getting enough sunlight and it’s crowded by the evergreen hogging all the space next to it. But I am SO going to work on that!
Yay for gardening in the South!
Now to find out what everything else in my yard is… half of the bushes I’ve never seen before!
