Blooms Purple – For a rare and exciting flower color, the Catawba Crape Myrtle has large clusters of rich purple flowers produced all summer long, while most other Crape Myrtles have flowers in shades of pink or lilac. If you have a smaller garden this plant is perfect, since it naturally grows into a medium-sized shrub 8 to 10 feet tall. It is fast-growing and can be used to quickly form a beautiful screen or it makes an outstanding specimen plant for your sunny garden.

• Rare rich purple color will amaze your neighbors
• Easily grown even in hot, dry locations
• Blooms all summer long
• Clean, healthy foliage all season long
• Perfect size for smaller gardens

The Catawba Crape Myrtle loves full sun, is drought-resistant and will thrive in most soils. It can be planted as a single plant on the lawn, among other flowering shrubs or in a row to form a spectacular screen for privacy.
