You can check out here what this Crepe Myrtle looked like when we first bought our house 4 years ago.
4 years later, this is how gorgeous it is!!! And it’s not finished blooming yet. The first year we only had a few blooms and now the whole tree basically blooms. Crepe Myrtle’s are really gorgeous tree’s to have. Granted, they basically bloom in August and last about a month. But they have beautiful bark for the rest of the year. It starts to peel off at this time of year, then in the Fall all the leaves fall off and you get to enjoy the lighter color bark for the rest of the year until the leaves start to bloom again.
