Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica)Even in the hottest climates, crepe myrtle does something pretty every day of the year. In the heat of summer, its flowers bloom in bouquet-size clusters of rich shades of red, pink, purple or white. The leaves turn yellow, orange and red in fall. Leafless trees in winter reveal brown and pink bark that is sometimes so smooth it gleams. For a patio tree, depending on your space, you can choose a plant with a single trunk or multiple trunks. USDA zones: 7 to 9 (find your zone)Water requirement: ModerateLight requirement: Full sunMature size: Up to 25 feet tall and 25 feet wide; pruning keeps it much smaller.Growing tip: In cool coastal climates, mildew often strikes the foliage and flowers. It's best to avoid planting this tree if you notice similar damage in your area.
A tree for your patio. What makes an ideal tree for a patio or other moderate-size outdoor living area? Generally you’ll want a plant that’s on the small side, good looking when you sit near or under it, well groomed without need for frequent pruning or litter sweep-up, and not requiring frequent pruning or other care. In Northern California, even in the hottest climates, crepe myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica) meets that job description. It will do something pretty every day of the year. In the heat of summer, its flowers bloom in bouquet-size clusters of rich shades of red, pink, purple and white. The leaves turn yellow, orange and red in fall. Leafless trees in winter reveal brown and pink bark that is sometimes so smooth it gleams. For a patio tree, depending on your space, you can choose a crepe myrtle with a single trunk or multiple trunks. Beware if you live in a cool coastal climate, where mildew often strikes the foliage and flowers so severely, you probably should make another choice for a prominent role on the patio.5 Best-Behaved Trees to Grace a Patio
Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Crape Myrtle
Planting notes. Because we've been cultivating these trees in the States for over 200 years, there are many varieties with different heights, shapes, hardiness ranges and flower colors. Check with your local nursery to see what's available in your area, then check the tag to find out what its mature size will be and choose a spot for it accordingly. Dig a hole that is approximately three times the width of the root ball and as deep as the root ball is high.Shake the root ball and loosen the roots that are all smushed together.Place the tree in the hole and fill in with dirt, packing it in firmly.Tamp the soil down and thoroughly water the tree. You'll want to water it every other day for the first month.
