'Natchez' Crape Myrtle

'Natchez' crape myrtle
(Lagerstroemia 'Natchez')
Zones 7–9

Multistemmed tree with prolific recurring white flowers in late June to September; distinctive exfoliating cinnamon-brown bark year-round. Grows 20–30 feet high by 15–35 wide and works well curbside, where it won't interfere with utility lines. Japanese crape myrtle (L. fauriei) 'Fantasy' with white flowers is especially vigorous and large, stretching 40–50 feet high.
