Kentucky Color: First Crepe Myrtle of year 16 Jun 2016
Click on headline for essay with photo(s)
By Billy Joe Fudge
We have purple, white and red. Purple or White almost always precede red when it comes to flowering.
They are an especially welcome sight since they were freeze-burned back to "the nubbin" a couple winters back. Crepe Myrtles are winter hardy down to about ten degrees for a couple of days but zero and below for multiple days in a row is really, really hard on them.
