Product Description

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.

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.

Beautiful tree

I ordered my crape and it was pretty much destroyed in transit but I contacted the customer service via email , sent some pics and they did a fantastic job reshipping another tree to me . It is thriving so far and cannot wait to see it Spring 2022. This is a great addition to any garden . Doesn't get too tall or wide and can be planted near the home because the roots are not dangerous to any piping , sewer line or home foundation. The red flowers add appeal to your home , very nice tree.

Already blooming!

The Enduring Summer Crepe Myrtle arrived in perfect condition. I planted this in the middle of summer but I made sure to give plenty of water and now it is thriving and blooming! I love the red color. It pops in front of my blue house.

Very pleased!

Knowing the beauty of crape myrtle trees, I was so happy to find a dwarf crape myrtle shrub. The Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle arrived in northern NJ well packaged and in healthy condition. I planted it right away and within days it had started to bloom in a beautiful bright dark pink color. Unfortunately, we've had much more rain lately than sun, but the plant has continued to grow and blossom nonetheless. I'm already thinking about where else I can add another beautiful dwarf crape myrtle shrub in my backyard.

Beautiful

I ordered two of these last September and 9 months later they are blooming beautifully. Would definitely purchase again. These are very different colors than what we normally see here in northern Florida.
