Enduring Summer ‘Red’ Crape Myrtle
Get a huge number of eye-catching blooms in the tightest spaces in your garden with the Enduring Summer Crape Myrtle. A compact flowering shrub that only grows to about 4 to 5 feet tall, it can fit anywhere and offers the iconic good looks of the Crape without the large size.
So, you get tons of flowers in any space. The Enduring Summer grows clusters of vibrant red blooms that last from the summer to fall, for at least four months of breathtaking flowers.
And you can put your shears and sprays away since the drought-tolerant and mold resistant Enduring Summer grows without the need for pruning or chemicals. From verandas to borders to city streets or even containers on your patio, the Enduring Summer resists heat, pollution and more to deliver eye-catching good looks.
Even better is the fact that it thrives in frigid weather, all the way down to 0 degrees. Crape Myrtles that thrive in northern areas this cold are almost unheard-of, but the Enduring Summer brings vibrancy to the chilliest climates.
