Lagerstromeria wins for leaf color, summer blossoms, and structural growth.
Crape Myrtle is a common choice for our Pacific Northwest gardens because of its vigor and beauty, especially in hot dry summer conditions. This cultivar is a crimson leafed variety developed by local nursery Xera Plants, specializing in species for our region’s hot dry summers and cool wet winters. A fairly new specimen, this four year old tree is just finding its shape. a special vessel by Portland’s Sherri Aytche has helped give it definition and grace. $120
