THE LONG AWAITED BLOOMING OF THE CREPE MYRTLE

It's hard to believe that just a year ago this part of our yard was all torn up. When we started planting last fall, the Crepe Myrtles were what we were really excited about. Now, Tuscarora, one of the three we planted, is finally blooming!
The Mimosa tree is blooming in the background. Every year I threaten to get rid of it because of its messy nature...but it's just so pretty and smells good too!
This summer I added some ice plants from Daryl's Nursery to fill in with some color before the wedding. Here is one of them in the foreground of the Crepe Myrtle with some close ups of a couple of the others below. One of the great things about them, other than their beautiful flowers, is that they are drought tolerant!

I have a crepe myrtle that has been just sitting in the spot that I put it at. It definitely needs more sun and I plan on transplanting it soon! Can't wait for it to grow! I first saw them on the east coast and fell in love with them! Yours is beautiful!
