Natchez Crepe Myrtle Description

Natchez Crepe Myrtle

The Natchez Crepe Myrtle is much planted in states such as Georgia and South Carolina, which offer exceptional growing conditions for this sensational tree species.

This tree's botanical name is Lagerstroemia x Natchez. The Natchez Crepe Myrtle is widely used in landscaping. A small deciduous shrub or tree, its leaves resemble those of the larger myrtle, Myrtus communis. This tree's flower petals resemble white crepe paper, adding texture and a unique visual appeal to any garden landscape. As with most crepe myrtles, The Natchez Crepe Myrtle's flowers are its selling point. Grow in striking clusters that last from mid-summer to fall; the blooms yield brownish fruits through the winter.

Natchez crepe myrtle care and maintenance

In the South, Natchez Crepe Myrtles can grow to 30 feet tall. This tree's leaves turn reddish-orange in fall and bears a reddish-brown bark that peels, similar to birch treesIn colder northern climates, it is best to plant the Natchez Crepe Myrtle as a shrub. This is because its best flowering display happens during sweltering summers, while it will go dormant in winter. The Natchez Crepe Myrtle prefers planting in the full sun and well-drained soil. Full sun will prevent mildew. In addition, Natchez Crepe Myrtles can be planted in groups to form decorative borders or a privacy hedge in your garden landscape.

Considerations

Your Natchez Crepe Myrtle tree is relatively low maintenance, although it will require some pruning to keep it looking its best. It is best to prune your Natchez Crepe Myrtle Tree's branches that cross over other components to promote airflow and reduce the possibility of mildew. The best time to prune is at the beginning of spring when new blooms are on the wood. Remove dead flowers throughout the summer and any suckers that may appear on your Natchez Crepe Myrtle.

This tree attracts aphids, which are best treated with honeydew drops. It also attracts a myriad of butterflies which add to its lovely appeal. Your Natchez Crepe Myrtle will give you years of fantastic flowering, butterfly watching, and garden appeal.

Natchez Crepe Myrtle Trees are now available at TN Nursery at a low price with fast shipping.
