Crape Myrtle White Natchez
.White Natchez Crape Myrtle
Crape myrtles are a true showpiece in your garden from mid-summer till frost. The blooms are a magnificent display that attracts flocks of hummingbirds and butterflies. Natchez produces 6 to 12 clusters of pure white flowers that last for several weeks. The leaves are bronze-colored when they first unfold in spring and become yellow, orange, or red before falling late in autumn.
These trees will grow up to 12 feet tall if left un pruned. Most gardeners like to prune the crape myrtles to control their size and the pruning stimulates new growth, thus they produce more blooms. Crape myrtles grow best in full sun with ample moisture. Once established they are extremely drought resistant. Hardy in zones 5 thru 10.
These crape myrtles are currently 6-12 inches when shipped. They will bloom nicely this summer. Shrubs will be shipped bare root with moist material around their roots.
