Imagine a garden with puffs of bright colored blooms adding cheer during the hot summer months. While some plants struggle to thrive in high temperatures, the new Purple Cow™ mid-size crapemyrtle will be ready to shine in the garden with its playful shade of purple.
Brimming with deep majestic purple flowers against dark green foliage, it is easy to see why Purple Cow™ is a gardener’s favorite. Standing 6-10 feet tall, the blooms flow freely creating a magnificent display. It is best combined with other brightly colored varieties to spread the cheer throughout all borders of the landscape. For an intriguing color echo effect, consider an under planting of Homestead Verbena. The shadowing of the colors tricks the eye into feeling like the blooms can go on forever.
With the lively shade of purple, it is truly a gardener’s delight.
