Cercidium - hybrid
The Crape Myrtle, often referred to as ‘the pride of the south’, is one of the most widely used flowering trees in the country, and loves the California weather. There are good reasons why this tree is so popular: it grows to an ideal height, the canopy establishes very quickly and evenly, and the bloom cycles are exceptionally long. Crape Myrtles are known to show their beautiful red-pink flowers from early spring all the way into the fall.
Strictly an ornamental tree, our Purple Leaf Plums produce no fruit and practically no litter, making life much easier for landscapers. Purple Leaf Plums hold their vibrant look well under the warm California sun, and will escape the typical year with no weather damage. Purple Leaf Plums are an excellent addition in any small or medium space where strong color is needed.
Additional Notes: "The Pride of the South" the Crape Myrtle is a widely used flowering tree that requires little cleanup, looks great, and is a favorite choice of California landscapers
