Crape Myrtle – Royalty
The Royalty Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica ‘Royalty’) is a medium sized crape myrtle with four seasons of interest. Green foliage emerges in the early spring, while beautiful purple blossoms start in late spring lasting all through until frost.
The green foliage will transition into a brilliant orange to red color in the fall. After the leaves fall, the exposed stems have an exfoliating bark in shades of gray to brown, giving a unique look to your winter landscape.
The Royalty Crape Myrtle is ideally suited for formal or informal design in the home landscape, street plantings and community plantings.
It can be planted as a specimen or in groups, and looks attractive when underplanted with a ground cover. Crape Myrtle is easy to grow and if they are used for hedges, plant them 4 to 5 feet apart.
