Plant of the Week: Ebony & Ivory Crepe Myrtle

The crepe myrtle is originally from China and has been in cultivation in the United States for more than a century. This beloved tree can be seen all over Hampton Roads, lining streets in its wide range of colors and sizes. July and August mark the peak of the tree’s 100-day blooming period -- putting on a show of beautiful crepe paper-like flowers.
