Crape Myrtles
Natchez White Crape Myrtle

Crape Myrtles (Lagerstroemia) are a staple in North Carolina landscapes. With a multitude of colors and sizes and a tolerance for extreme heat, the crape myrtle is a popular selection for any landscape. Crape Myrtles come in small (3 to 5 ft) medium (10 to 15 ft) and large (20 to 25 ft) varieties, so the key is to select the size of plant that will suit your need. It needs very little pruning or pest control. Once established, the only attention you need to give it is admiration.

We've been growing crape myrtles for many years and we love them. Without crape myrtles, summer just wouldn't be the same. If you're interested in having some in your landscape, we want to be your crape myrtle headquarters.
