What Houzz contributors are saying:

After stopping off for a fresh turkey and havarti sandwich at the snack bar, you come out to this parterre, where boxwoods ring crepe myrtles that spring out of beds of tulips. The natural forms of crepe myrtles are so beautiful; I'll never understand why people give them those bizarre and severe pruning jobs. Their beautiful bark and sculptural silhouettes provide interest all year long, even without flowers or leaves. The blue glass sculpture in the background is by Dale Chihuly.
Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Crape Myrtle
The tree is multistemmed and sculptural. Even before crape myrtle leafs out in the spring, its dense branching patterns and overall vase shape are sights to behold.
