A History of the Crepe Myrtle

Standing on a thin carpet of fallen blooms, with a canopy of color above me, I immediately fell in love with the Crepe Myrtle tree, and since then have set out to collect them all.

Thanks for all this info Dave. So much good stuff here, very interesting, all of it. I really had not realized they produced seed, really just didn't think about it. I'm going to try and collect seed from the 4 Black Diamond Series that I planted last year, I'd love to have these all over the hillside!!!! They are absolutely stunning!

They are very easy to germinate. Just follow the directions in the article and you'll have dozens (or hundreds!) of seedlings. Smiling
