These Flowers Attract Attention
You get tons of color from your Catawba Crape Myrtle. You'll enjoy vibrant, dark purple blooms from late spring until fall... over 120 days of flowers!
Very Easy to Grow and Maintain
Catawbas only grow 10-15 feet tall, so you can easily plant them in tight spaces without worrying that they'll get too big. You often see these lining driveways, near entryways or along sidewalks in high-end neighborhoods. This is an excellent size for front yards as it will not overpower the home's facade.
This Unique Tree Gives You Everything
This is the perfect tree for tight spaces that you really want to "pop". Deep green leaves emerge in the spring. Summer sees the glorious, deep purple blooms. Tip-trim the spent blooms to encourage a longer blooming cycle.
After the blooms finally fade in the mid to late fall, the leaves will begin to turn. A lovely bronze coats the leaves, making it an autumn color standout. Any flowers left to go to seed will become dark brown seed pods. These provide food for birds and an interest texture for the winter. They're also nice additions for dried flower arrangements.
