The Indulgence Vanilla Gelato Crape Myrtle is a tough, fast-growing deciduous shrub that soon becomes 8 or 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide. It is bushy, with small, glossy leaves that are vibrant purple-red all the way from spring into fall, without greening or browning. Blooming begins in June, and with a full second crop it continues right into September – simply dead-head once. Packed with blooms, the pyramidal, 8-inch flower heads carry a profusion of frilly blooms of a very pale lavender-pink. The bright contrast with the dark foliage is wonderful, filling your garden with light and beauty.

  • Cooling tones of pale pink on big flower heads
  • Blooms twice a season – from June to September
  • Vibrant purple-red foliage is stable and constant
  • Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds
  • Thrives in heat and in dry soils

Plant the Indulgence Vanilla Gelato Crape Myrtle in full sun, as any shade reduces flowering. It thrives in hot, dry places, and will even grow on poor soils and in urban conditions. Established plants have excellent drought resistance, and this variety has been bred to have strong resistance to both powdery mildew and cercospora leaf spot, staying fresh and clean all summer. Deer and other pests are rarely an issue. Prune in early spring to encourage bushy growth, and avoid summer trimming.
