Loaded with Blooms...

Lagerstroemia indica 'Rubra'

 This crepe myrtle has to be the star of the garden for this week. At close to 15 feet tall it is much larger than I had envisioned it would be when I planted it here.
I thought for many years that I could not grow these beautiful plants because our winters would cause them to die back to the ground. I know our winters can be much worse than we have had the last few years and I may have a year that they could die back but until then I will enjoy these beautiful blooms!
