Hello Shasta Callahan, thanks for your question. That is a lagerstoemia or Crepe Myrtle. This variety is called "Natchez" and is the most cold hardy in the Northeast. One of my favorite for summer flowering.

Good luck with your project!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to 4 Steps to the Perfect Garden
Sectioning off segments of your garden in strong shapes on a diagonal will make it look like your garden is wider and longer. Define areas of grass, pavement, and landscape with borders of rocks or bricks to break up big sections and add texture and interest.
