Natchez Crape Myrtle | Flowering Tree
The Natchez Crape Myrtle offers unusually large white blooms, from June to September. Then, in Fall, the foliage becomes a reddish-orange tint. The bark peels off attractively, much like birches, adding winter interest. The Natchez Crape Myrtle also delivers unusual bark coloring of cinnamon on the trunk and stems, along with its smooth, sleek distinctive texture. This coloring gives you great winter interest with a brightness not found in most other trees during the cold season. This is a fast-growing tree, at a rate of 3 to 5 feet per year, and is tolerant of many climates.
