If you are looking for a non-stop flowering tree or shrub, come in and see our great selection of crape myrtles (Lagerstromeia). They are a relatively easy plant to grow with different varieties flowering in purple, white, pink, or red. You can buy them in shrub or tree form.
A great plant for that empty spot that needs a little color!
