We should use more crape myrtles in Kentuckiana, they are not just for more warm, temperate climates; in fact, there are a great many that go unbothered by an average winter in our parts.
There is often a lull in the garden at this time, our early summer blooms are fading and our late summer garden has yet to pop; but the crape myrtle can provide a colorful bridge between the two. This summer blooming shrub is in full glory by the end of July through August, the months of high summer, as I like to call it.
