• The darkest purple on a crape myrtle!
• Low maintenance
• Highly drought tolerant
The royal purple colors of the Twilight Crape Myrtle have been difficult to find until now!
With large, lightly fragrant flower clusters that bloom from early June until frost, it can be grown as a broad shrub or as a horizontal tree.
This is one of the few crape myrtles that bloom deep purple flowers for 70 days!
Twilight Purple Crape Myrtles grow up to 20-25 feet tall, making it a popular choice for lining driveways, roadways, fences, or in groupings as a stunning showpiece for your yard.
The leaves on the Twilight unfold in late Spring with a display of bronze color that becomes a deep green during the Summer months. These will change to yellows, oranges, or burgundy in the fall.
For even more color, the bark changes from the smooth mottled gray that gradually peels off in early Summer to reveal a light pink bark that darkens to reddish brown.
The rich purple flowers are an incredible contrast to the subtle colors of the bark.
This variety of Langerstroemia fauriei have been bred for hardiness. Once established, they are extremely drought tolerant and have a vigorous growth rate.
Twilight crape myrtles do best in full sun and love acidic soil.
These crape myrtles are easy to grow and a delightful addition to any yard. Besides making a wonderful barrier, they are resistant to deer and rabbits, and do well in most growing conditions.
