Pink Velour Crapemyrtle-PottedLagerstroemia indica 'Whit III' Pink Velour
Often referred to as the Lilac of the South due to its popularity in southern gardens, the pink velour crapemyrtle adds plenty of flashy pink color to any landscape all summer long. But the flowers are not the only point of interest for this shrub. The bark on its mature branches exfoliates. The leathery leaves emerge wine-colored, turning purple-green in the summer and orange-brown in the fall. Also, the bark on its mature branches exfoliates.
This shrub works well as a specimen or as part of a shrub or perennial border.
