Lagerstroemia ‘Early Bird Crapemyrtle Lavender’

An introduction from the Southern Living Plant Collection, this plant is one of three color options available in this early blooming crapemyrtle series. Early Bird crapemyrtles begin blooming in May, often as early as Mother’s Day and much earlier than other June-July blooming varieties, and the Early Birds will re-bloom for up to 120 days. ‘Early Bird Crapemyrtle Lavender’ grows from 5 to 8 feet tall, so it is perfect for smaller gardens or spaces; try it as a large shrub, small tree or natural flowering hedge.
