Since it’s introduction in the antebellum South during the 1800’s, Crape Myrtles have become a staple of the Southern garden. In recent years, gardeners along the Eastern seaboard have successfully pushed some cultivars of the Crape Myrtle along the coast as far north as Cape Cod.
With new cultivars coming out almost every year, gardeners can get Crapes in almost every color and size ranging from dwarfs like Pocomoke at about 12″ to the original Japanese variety called Townhouse which can reach 50 feet. Home and Garden Landscapes has a fantastic selection of mature specimen quality Crapes for your landscape. Below is a partial inventory of our Crape Myrtle selection.
