When Natchez Crape Myrtle is in bloom, it looks as if we just received snow in the heat of the summer! This fast-growing tree blooms pure white, soft-textured flowers in the summer, creating a scene that can help mentally cool you off! These small ornamental trees are a hybrid introduced by the U.S. National Arboretum selected for their hardiness and mildew resistance.
We like to plant them as a focal point in a landscape, and besides the showy flowers, they can also provide shade. We can also use them as a beautiful privacy screen to block out unwanted views in style! With so many pleasing attributes, it’s easy to see why the Crape Myrtle Natchez is such a valuable addition to any landscape!
Natchez Crape Myrtle are deciduous. Their glossy dark green leaves turn to a vibrant orange-red color in the fall. Another fascinating thing about them is their unusual smooth, peeling bark. This little beauty features an attractive color of dark, cinnamon brown trunk and stems.
Caring for Natchez Crape Myrtle is easy. They are water-wise, so once established, they require little to moderate watering. They do appreciate full sun, so plant them in a location with plenty of sun exposure. Homeowners in urban areas can add color to their environment – they tolerate urban pollution. Plants such as Indian Hawthorn, Agapanthus, and Liriope make great companions, too. Enhance any landscape whether planting them in groups or as a specimen!
