Let’s Talk About Crape Myrtles

Zaino’s Nursery & Garden Center has a fabulous selection of Crape Myrtles that are just perfect in every landscape. A favorite of ours is the Dynamite® Crape Myrtle, an attractive ornamental small tree with smooth, peeling bark. Enjoy Showy, fiery red flowers in late summer followed by vibrant orange-red foliage in the fall. This tree is an excellent choice as a specimen plant or plant in groups for an explosion of color in the landscape and year-round interest.
