The Crape Myrtle trees grown at Moon Valley Nurseries are superior thanks to mildew resistance. As a US National Arboretum introduction, our custom-grown, mildew-resistant Crape Myrtle Lagerstroemia offers year-round interest and beauty.
Drought tolerant, Crape Myrtle craves the heat and will bloom with large clusters of delicate flowers. When the hot weather arrives, expect late spring and summer colors to decorate your landscape with shades of red, white, purple, and pink. Crape Myrtle Lagerstroemia is just as colorful in the fall as it is in the summer, in fact, these are one of the best trees with fall color.
Autumn colors such as golden, bright yellow, orange, and red are sure to complement any yard and landscape. This small-to-medium-sized deciduous tree looks good even after the fall foliage has fallen, revealing a handsome outline and smooth, spotted gray to light brown bark that may shed to reveal a pinkish, inner bark. Use landscape lighting to highlight the beautiful multi-trunk structure.
The cold-hardy Crape Myrtle prefers full sun, though it handles partial shade as well. A longtime favorite plant for use in many landscape styles, Crape Myrtle grows at a slow to moderate growth rate up to 15-feet high, spreading up to 8 to 12 feet.
Moon Valley Nurseries offers mature Crape Myrtle trees that have been nurtured by our nursery professionals. These trees usually take on a vase shape with shiny, bright green leaves. They are drought-tolerant once established and combine well with other plants in any landscape or garden. Feel free to plant Crape Myrtles as smaller trees for privacy, as shade trees, as well as for instant beauty and curb appeal.
It is easy to see why Crape Myrtle is such a popular plant for dry climates and many landscape styles and uses. You can plant attractive Crape Myrtle trees at any time of the year, with only annual to occasional maintenance required.
Fun Fact: Crape Myrtle trees are often mistakenly referred to as Crepe Myrtle trees. They received this misconception due to the fact that wrinkly flower petals closely resemble crepe paper. Additionally, we have nothing against the delightful French cuisine, but Lagerstroemia trees share no association with the tasty crepe.

Beautiful ColorsI have 3 different colors of Crape Myrtle planted by Moon and they are amazing. These trees give some nice shade and are the talk of the neighborhood. Everyone asks us about them! The flowers seem to bloom forever and just keep coming. I couldn't be more pleased with these new trees and high recommend them!
Blooms BeautifullyWe had Moon plant 5 of these around our backyard this summer. These trees are so pretty! They've bloomed for weeks now with pink, red, purple, and white! They almost act as filtered shade trees to, they block out a lot of the western sun the blast our backyard, making bearable to actually sit out and enjoy the summer nights. The crew was professional and cleaned up very well. The trees have done great and we've been using the Moon fertilizers too.
