Gardeners' Notes:

This Tuskegee Crepe Myrtle tree is 25 feet tall and quite lovely. It sports showy magenta blooms from late June through October here in zone 7 and is usually teeming with hummingbirds. It's multi-branched trunk is also quite beautiful throughout the winter.

I really love this tree.
