Yes, they are Crapemrytles, Lagerstroemia species. Winter hardy in zones 7 and farther south, the leaves emerge late in Spring and the flowering occurs in mid to late Summer. Both bark and fall lead color are ornamental. Truly a small tree for all four seasons.

If you’re at the coldest end of the spectrum (around or above the Mason-Dixon line), you’ll want to find a warm, protected microclimate for it. Water requirement: Needs moist, well-drained soil but can tolerate drier conditions once it is establishedLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 15 to 40 feet high and 6 to 15 feet wide Benefits and tolerances: Can tolerate dry soils and claySeasonal interest: Summer and fall flowers; exfoliating bark; beautiful silhouette in winterWhen to plant: Either after the last frost or at least four weeks before the first frost
