Months of Blooms on a Space-Saving Shrub

Why Enduring Summer Crape Myrtles?

Get a huge number of eye-catching blooms in the tightest spaces in your garden with the Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle. A compact flowering shrub that only grows to about 4 to 5 feet tall, it can fit anywhere and offers the iconic good looks of the Crape without the large size.

So, you get tons of flowers in any space. The Enduring Summer grows clusters of vibrant red blooms that last from the summer to fall, for at least four months of breathtaking flowers.

And you can put your shears and sprays away since the drought-tolerant and mold resistant Enduring Summer grows without the need for pruning or chemicals. From verandas to borders to city streets or even containers on your patio, the Enduring Summer resists heat, pollution and more to deliver eye-catching good looks.

Even better is the fact that it thrives in frigid weather, all the way down to 0 degrees. Crape Myrtles that thrive in northern areas this cold are almost unheard-of, but the Enduring Summer brings vibrancy to the chilliest climates.

Why is Better

With your Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle, you get versatility in planting, adaptability in growth and hassle-free care. We’ve planted, grown and shipped each Crape Myrtle with a healthy, developed root system, directly to your door.

And when you order our larger sizes, you get color and fuller growth almost immediately. You won’t find these larger-sized, well-developed Crapes at your local big-box store or nursery.

Rich color and effortless good looks are just a click away – experience the beauty of our Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle for yourself today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Select a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) for optimal blooming. After you have found your planting area, make your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Carefully remove the Myrtle’s root ball from the container, place it into the hole and make sure that the root crown (where the root ball meets the trunk of the tree) is level with the soil surface.
Tamp down the soil lightly as you backfill the hole to prevent air pockets from forming and then water after you’ve finished to settle the soil. Mulch the area around the tree to conserve water moisture and deter competing weeds.

2. Watering: After planting your young tree, water about once or twice each week until it’s established. If you live in an especially hot climate, you may need to water up to five times weekly. During the cooler seasons, you’ll only need to water once weekly.

If you’re not sure when to water, simply check your surrounding soil with your finger – if the soil is dry 3 or 4 inches down, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Your Enduring Summer Crape will benefit from a light application of a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the early spring and summer. Follow label instructions when fertilizing your Crape.

4. Pruning: You won’t need to prune your Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle unless you’d like to shape it. To encourage branching, make your cuts, with clean shears, on the longer, leggy limbs. Remove any damaged, diseased, or crossing branches during the late winter. Also, remove any low-growing branches (also known as suckers) if you’d like a more upright, tree-like look.

Looking forward to blooms

The package arrived in excellent condition and the plants inside were also in excellent condition. I'm anxious to see the crape myrtle in bloom.

Received nice 3 gallon shrubs

Will have to wait for blooming to be sure I have the color I purchased. For slower growing shrubs like Crape Myrtles, it is worth it to spend a little more for larger sizes that have a bigger root system. My shrubs arrived fast, well packaged, no damage, etc. Very happy so far.

love this plant

It was a replacement for the wrong size sent. I always order the larger established size and received the small twig size. This plant when I get the right size is incredible for Florida! it is so difficult to grow anything here, but this, omg, just gorgeous and full of blooms. I have several of them. The customer service for the replacement of the actual size I ordered was amazing! I thought this would drag on but within a week it was shipped. So pleased

Everything went well… other than the shape of the box that was delivered. This is the second time I held my breath as I opened the beat up box.) Thankfully- the two myrtles were good. Even had a few flowers popping out! Your products are amazing! Maybe check into better delivery service. They do not reflect your beauteous creations�
