Tall Crape

Here is a Creapemyrtle that looks to be happy in the part of the yard.  Had to re-plant is a few times, nearly lost the bush.  It come out in late spring, you almost think its dead.  Slow grower, but in late August is looks very nice with maroon flowers at the top.  Was trying to keep it shorter, but cutting it just hurts the plant and top flowers.  Now just letting it grow wild, pushing the height of the white spire birch behind it.

Big Red Flower

Here is a late spring arrival, but makes a big splash in late August.  It has been growing for 4 years now.
