Catawba Hardy Crape Myrtle

Description
An outstanding ornamental tree for the garden or landscape! This small tree or large shrub provides bold purple blooms, outstanding foliage color and even shedding bark for winter interest. In the summer months, the deep purple flower panicles open and attract butterflies. The Catawba Hardy Crape Myrtle has deciduous foliage that has a bronzy cast in the spring and that turns a bright green during the summer months. In the fall, the glossy green foliage turns a stunning orange-red. The bark has red, brown and gray hues. Growing 6-15' tall, the Catawba Hardy Crape Myrtle performs best when planted in organically rich, well-drained soil and full sun. It becomes more drought tolerant with age.

Purchased 3 of these and planted them as soon as they arrived. Only 1 survived. The other two were barely hanging on when they arrived.All the other items we purchased at the same time are thriving (bulbs aren't up but that's normal)
