Everyone loves the crape myrtle. From its gorgeous shape to its multiple trunks to its long lasting colorful blooms this tree has all you could want in a stand out landscape tree. As many of you know these trees can often grow quite big even beyond the suggested mature size in the optimal southern climate. Today we will share with you some varieties that will fit in small yards and gardens. Some grow more like a tree and some more like a bush, but they are all less than 15 feet at maturity.
