Beautiful! I really love Queen's Crepe Myrtle! I'm not sure why it's not so widely grown here. The ones I've seen growing here look really healthy and beautiful!

They're such a great summer bloomer here Andy ... and they look so great for much of the year ... even when the leaves turn a russet red during our winter.

Yes, I love the flowers! I know they are briefly deciduous here.
