Catawba tree

Catawba Crape Myrtle gives 3 seasons of color. Deep green leaves in spring. Mid to late summer - deep purple blooms. Tip-trim the spent blooms to encourage a longer blooming cycle. A lovely bronze coats the leaves in autumn. Any flowers left to go to seed will become dark brown seed pods. Can also be trimmed into a small tree. Mature height - 10-12 feet. Spread - 8 to 12 feet and widest at the crown.

Bloom from a Catawba tree!

Bloom from a Catawba tree!

Catawba crepe myrtle. If you love violet flowers and reddish-orange fall foliage, consider planting this Crape Myrtle in your Houston, Texas garden. This pretty tree will grow to be about 20 feet tall, and does best when planted in full sun. It can tolerate cold down to single digits (unlikely in Houston, Texas) and is also disease resistant and drought tolerant. This Crape Myrtle is a good choice for an accent plant or small landscapes. It will bring birds to your Houston, Texas garden.
