One of three varieties of re-blooming Early Bird Crape Myrtles, the Purple variety of Early Bird brings a rich plum-violet to the table that never ceases to impress. These crape myrtles will bloom repeatedly, reaching 100-120 days of brilliant showstopper blooms. The royal purple flowers are given unique dimension by the deep green leaves that make up the body of this stunning plant. This emerald foliage provides an ideal background to frame the grape-like clusters of flowers. Early Bird Crape Myrtles are semi-dwarf varieties that will only get to be about 5-8 ft tall, and 3-4 ft wide, making them ideal as hedge plants, accents, or for container gardening. Plant in full sun or part shade, and watch as the Early Bird Crape Myrtle Purple turns heads in your yard for seasons to come.
