Commonly Asked Questions

When do Crepe Myrtles flower?

Crepe myrtles, also known as Lagerstroemia, typically bloom during the summer months. The exact timing can vary depending on the specific variety, local climate, and environmental conditions.

In general, crepe myrtles begin to produce their vibrant, showy flowers from late spring to early summer and continue blooming through the summer months, often into early fall. The peak flowering period for many crepe myrtle cultivars is in mid to late summer.

The flowers of crepe myrtles come in various colors such as shades of pink, purple, red, and white, adding a spectacular display to landscapes during their blooming season. Factors like adequate sunlight, proper pruning, and sufficient water contribute to healthy growth and abundant flowering.

 

Is it easy to look after a Crepe myrtle?

Yes, Crepe Myrtles are a resilient tree. They do not require pruning and, once established, have low water needs. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the tree to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weeds. Mulch also helps improve soil structure over time.

 

Want to add extra drama to your garden design?

If planting Tuscarora in your front garden, for a bold move, consider painting your front door in the same shade as the flower blooms. It’s a bold choice, but what an incredible sight!
