Crape Myrtle, Sun-Loving Color of the South

God lessens the double-whammy misery of heat and humidity here in Texas with a blessing of summer-loving crape myrtles. I made an exception to my "nothing but wild-scape" plans by planting three at the top of our walkway to greet visitors. 

They finally bloomed for me...

I wasn't the only one admiring the new blossoms...

This is a PS to my summer wildflowers post - how I could forget something this unique? 


  1. Love that white rimmed crape myrtle!

    that's a spider flower, isn't it?

  2. That is one of the most beautiful flowers and photos I've ever seen! Great job Barbara!

  3. Thank you both! I'm not sure what it is, Jill, but it sure caught my eye!
