Hi

I am interested in the QUEEN'S LACE PICOTEE crape myrtle . I have looked everywhere to get a picture of a Fully Grown tree of Queens Lace Picotee variety but have not been able to find.
I have the following questions regarding QUEEN'S LACE PICOTEE. Appreciate if you could kindly clarify them so that i can place the order.

* Can you please send the images of a fully grown Queens Lace Picotee tree showing the entire tree stem and canopy so that I can see how a Fully grown Queens Lace Picotee Crape Myrtle tree looks like .because I cannot find any images online of a fully frown Queens Lace Picotee .
* Also how long does it take to grow
* What height does Queens Lace grow and width of its canopy.
* Does Queens lace have a canopy like the Tuscarora crape myrtle.
* How many weeks does it flower in a year and which months ?
* What zones does Queens lace grow in and how is it suited for New Jersey weather.


Kindly clarify above questions about Queens Lace Picotee

thanks

Hi waavman, Welcome!

You can find growing information and photos here at our database entry for Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'Queens Lace') This tree will grow 15 to 30 feet in height. I don't know what the growing zone is for you in New Jersey but Crepe Myrtle usually do well in zones 7 and higher.

Based on the pictures you sent , it does NOT look like one tree with a canopy. But seems to appear like a bush with multiple stems and so appears more like a bush than a tree. Is there a picture of a fully grown single tree of Queens Lace Picotee crape myrtle instead of mutiple trees planted next to each other like in the picture which makes it look more like a bush than a single tree

thanks

That's the common growth habit of Crepe Myrtles, they send out many suckers; to get the single trunk form of tree, you have to remove the suckers. Our database currently has no photos of a single trunk tree.

Thanks a lot for the information.
I have one more question.

Can you please let me know of any species of tree which grows 10-20 feet tall and bears Orange / Deep Orange flowers for a few months in Summer ?

Really Appreciate any information on this.

thanks
