About Early Bird™ Lavender Crapemyrtle

True to its name, the Early Bird Crapemyrtle Lavender from the Southern Living Plant Collection begins blooming in May, often as early as Mother’s Day, which is considerably earlier than other June-July blooming crape myrtles. Not only is the Early Bird the first on the block to have blooms, it re-blooms for a total of around 100-120 days of eye-popping lavender color. The Early Bird Crapemyrtle Lavender is one of three beautiful varieties of early blooming, semi-dwarf crape myrtles. Traditionally only reaching heights of 5-8’ feet tall, the limited height of the Early Bird Crape Myrtles makes them a fantastic choice for an informal hedge. The emerald green leaves provide the perfect backdrop for the soft lavender flowers that emerge from tight, grape-like clusters. These flowers are delicate as well as stunning, and add a unique splash of color to any landscape. Find a sunny, or mostly sunny, spot to plant this amazing shrub and enjoy its symphony of blooms for years to come.

Spacing Your Early Bird Crapemyrtle Lavender 

Space Your Early Bird Crapemyrtle Lavender 3 feet apart for a seamless planting. Early Bird Crapemyrtle Lavender grows best when spaced at it’s mature size. So, for this plant it would need to be planted 4+ feet apart.

    I purchased this plant 2 years ago. I wish to purchase another. This year it has really outdone any plant in my garden. The lavender blooms are so big and heavy, I have to stake the branches. I have other crepe myrtles but nothing as stunning as this.
