I feel that way about my pink crape myrtle right now. I see this crape myrtle from my kitchen. Hanging over a bench, its shape is romantic. Like frilly petticoats, the heavy blooms drape down, swaying in the breeze.
Right now, I'm in love. And I'm not the only one. The bees circle around, nuzzling into the blooms as if in a sweet caress.
And when the petals fall, they carpet the ground with tiny pink confetti. Again, very romantic.
There are a variety of crape myrtles. Some red, some pink, some white, some purple. Some tall, some short. Mine are left to grow tall. This one has been planted for almost 10 years, and is around 15 ft. tall.
Grown from seed, crape myrtles grow in zones 7 to 9b. A southern classic.
Very pretty in pink.
