The crepe myrtle is a tall shrub to small deciduous tree, well suited to the average garden. They provide summer shade, are long flowering, have good leaf colour in autumn, and have beautiful mottled bark. They are adaptable to most soils. They develop a nice umbrella shape when left to grow naturally, or they can be pruned to any size. If heavily pruned, the trunk develops interesting gnarled shapes.
Crepe myrtles are best suited to warm dry climates, but will grow in most areas.
Older varieties are prone to mildew. Newer varieties have been bred to be mildew resistant.
