Northern Belle Hardy Crape Myrtle Trio

Cold Zones, Meet Your Crape Myrtle!
Crape myrtle are the gems of southern gardens, and these three will perform with exceptional beauty in warm zones. But what makes them truly groundbreaking is that they'll thrive in gardens all the way up through chilly zone 6! In fact, they've been trialed in zone 6 with no winter protection, and they still bloomed in abundance the following season. In the north, these three will die back in winter and jump up in spring, delivering incredibly vibrant sprays of blooms perennially. This makes them compact at about 3-4' in cold climates. In the south, they won't die back in winter and may grow up to 5' tall. Wherever you grow them, you'll have tons of impossibly vibrant floral color to set your landscape apart. These three bloom at slightly different times, so you'll have an extended season of interest, too.
