Crepe Myrtle
When it comes to making a statement in a garden, you have to think big. Even better when it’s an advanced tree.

Manor Nurseries have been growing and selling mature trees for over 15 years and they know exactly what plants work.

Crepe Myrtles are always a brilliant choice and these few are standouts.

Lagerstroemia ‘Apalachee’ is a medium sized tree which with a rounded to spreading habit. Producing a wonderful display of lavender-pink frilly flowers all summer long. This one is a winner.

Another, equally stunning Crepe Myrtle is Natchez with its spectacular white crinkle like flowers borne in in late Summer. It has a beautiful growth habit with dark green leaves changing to orange in autumn.

The Soft Lavender Flowered Yuma makes a perfect compact, multi-stemmed tree that, like these other Crepe Myrtles, loves hot conditions and once established tends to be drought tolerant.
