Plant a Lipan Crape Myrtle and take in the summertime show of pink-purple flowers. The showy flowers can make your yard stand out from the ordinary! This purple flowering Crape Myrtle has one of the longest blooming periods of all Crape Myrtle trees.

Enjoy the lovely sight of this pink-purple flowering tree for months on end! We like to plant them in rows so they can create a beautiful privacy hedge or a spectacular property border.

The flowers tend to steal the show, but that is not where the color stops. Lipan Crape Myrtle trees feature glossy green foliage that turns to a brilliant orange-red in the fall, making this one of the best trees with fall color for your landscape!

As an added attraction, this highly mildew-resistant tree has a smooth, cinnamon-colored bark that peels to reveal a shiny light gray hue. Crape Myrtles truly bring year-round color! Highlight the attractive bark and tree structure with nighttime landscape lighting. Night lighting will take your landscape's 'wow' factor to a whole new level!

Homeowners in the Southwest are sure to appreciate how water-wise Crape Myrtles are. They will have low to moderate watering needs once established. Plant them in a spot with full sun exposure, and they will thrive. Their tolerance for urban conditions makes them a suitable addition for adding natural color to any urban garden, too.

Crape Myrtle trees grow at a slow to moderate growth rate. We recommend planting mature specimens to bring instant color and curb appeal to your home. These trees benefit from monthly applications of fertilizer such as our Moon Dust from March to September. The extra nutrients will keep your Lipan Crape Myrtles happy and healthy, help push more growth for a lush canopy and myriad of fall foliage, as well as promote the best coat of stunning purple flowers!

Every time a plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly saturated to a depth of at least 2 to 3 feet and at least as wide as a tree well. Very slow and deep watering is always recommended. During periods of extreme heat, we advise at least 1 additional time per week of watering for all varieties. For periods of heavy rain (1/2” or more) adjust accordingly by possibly skipping a watering session for that time.
