What is a crape myrtle trees life cycle?



  1. 0 Votes


    A crepe myrtle tree blossoms for up to 120 days, according to gardenguides.com.  The name comes from the crinkly texture that is similar to crepe paper.  Its leaves are usually yellow or bronze in the spring.  The color then deepens into red colors in the fall when the leaves drop off.

    After flowering, the crepe myrtle produces tan or black fruit that are seed pods.  Inside the pods are six seed capsules.  These fruits stay on the tree throughout winter.  The fruits split open and release the seeds, which germinate easily. 

    “The tree flourishes in U.S. Department of Agriculture zones 7 to 9”.
