Months of blooms on a space saving shrub

The Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle is a compact flowering shrub that only grows to about 4 to 5 feet tall, so it can fit anywhere. This versatile crape myrtle also thrives in containers and can be kept on the porch, or patio to add a burst of hot color to the space. They’re popular for framing entryways and for lining steps.  

Enduring Summer Crape Myrtles may be small in size, but their color is huge. They have clusters of vibrant red blooms that last from the summer all the way into the fall for at least four months of breath taking flowers.

Put your pruners away, because this low maintenance crape myrtle variety naturally has a rounded shape. When planted in rows they will fill in on their own to create an even living hedge that’s perfect for border rows and even provides privacy without the need for constant trimming.  

The Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle earned its title for being nearly impossible to kill. With an extremely high drought tolerance and heat resistance it endures everything that hot and dry summers have to throw at it. 

Also, this crape myrtle is humidity tolerant and resists molds and mildews that harm other trees in humid conditions. The Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle is an excellent choice for urban city areas because it’s smog and pollution tolerant.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle again after the transplant is complete.
