Romantic elegance for your garden! Crape Myrtles always add elegance and form to a garden, as well as great summer flower color at eye-level. Acoma Crape Myrtle (Lagerstroemia indica x faueri ‘Acoma’) is a full, thick shrub that is often pruned to become a 7 foot tall and wide tree that makes a striking statement shrub. Crape Myrtles are often tree-like, but Acoma is a nice rounded shrub. This means that when it is pruned into a tree form (as it is most often) it has a full head that can be wider than it is tall, giving the shrub a stunning bouquet-of-flowers look. The pure white crinkled and ruffled flower clusters hang a little lower than other crapes, to a very romantic effect. The flowers come on strong in mid-summer and last to fall. The leaves bust out light green in the spring, darkening-up in the summer and then turning deep jewel-tone shades of red and purple in the fall. As the tree ages the bark gets a gorgeous “peeling” look to it, making it very interesting all winter. Highly resistant to disease and mildews, Acoma always looks clean and healthy. Acoma Crape Myrtle trees will grow and thrive even in the hottest and driest gardens, loving the heat and resistant to drought once they are established. The season long flowers and dramatic and beautiful foliage make this a romantic showstopper in the garden. It’s guaranteed to add a little glamour to your home from spring through the first frosts.
