Design Ideas: A vivid red crepe myrtle is an ideal foundation accent tree for the front yard. Add to a long fence line bed for interest or integrate into evergreen trees or those that bloom in spring to offer late summer balance. A beautiful choice for small city lots with four seasons of change.

Follow a regular watering schedule the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Thin young trees in late winter to early spring, leaving 3-7 main trunks or canopy branches. On older trees, prune only to remove suckers that have emerged from main trunks or ground.
