Yet Another Reason...

There are many reasons Crape Myrtles are one of my favorite trees, and as you can see the bark alone makes it worth growing. They are so abundant here you would think they were native. This one is Natchez (Lagerstroemia x 'Natchez') which is one of the most common of the modern hybrids. Just think how this will look if we could get a little snow to put around the base of it.
