The Purely Purple Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia 'Purely Purple') is a beautiful, deciduous ornamental tree prized for its showy purple flowers and attractive, peeling bark. Known for its summer-long blooms and relatively low maintenance, this eye-catching tree is an excellent addition to gardens, landscapes, and streetscapes.
The Purely Purple Crape Myrtle is a medium-sized tree that typically grows to a height of 10 to 12 feet, with a spread of 6 to 8 feet. It is suitable for USDA hardiness zones 6 to 9 and thrives in full sun, requiring at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. The tree prefers well-drained, moderately fertile soil but is adaptable to various soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils.
The Purely Purple Crape Myrtle has a multi-stemmed, upright growth habit and features smooth, peeling bark that reveals a mottled mix of cream, gray, and brown underneath. This striking bark adds interest to the landscape, particularly during the winter months when the tree is dormant.
One of the most notable features of the Purely Purple Crape Myrtle is its vibrant, purple flowers. The blooms appear in clusters, known as panicles, which can be up to 8 inches long. The flowering period begins in mid-summer and continues through early fall, providing a long-lasting and eye-catching display.
The flowers of the Purely Purple Crape Myrtle are not only visually stunning but also attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, making it an ideal choice for gardeners looking to support local wildlife.
