Heat-Lover






The Crepe Myrtle bush is in full bloom, it's flowers will put on this show for the better part of a month.
The bees and Hummingbirds are drawn to it's huge Watermelon Red blooms.
It loves the summer heat, I have offered it my portion.

Those Crepe Myrtle bushes are incredible, but I looked up their range and see they are a very southern plant. Don't make it any place close to Ontario!

Gorgeous! We have 3 and they're huge and provide a lot of shade by our garage. Ours are a lavender color. I love crepe myrtles! Thanks for sharing yours!

The Crepe Myrtles are amazing right now. They remind me of the chrysanthemum fireworks. I have both white and fuchsia pink in my yard and they are loving this hot and humid Tennessee weather!

I love crepe myrtles! I have several, from 2 white trees, several small tree shrubs and then the little ones. The color is always fabulous in the heat for north central Texas. Your crepe myrtle is a beautiful color.

Hmm, I wonder if it would grow perennially up here in New Hampshire? We need to make sure the bees and hummingbirds have plenty of nectar after all...
