This is my grandmother's very pretty bright pink Crepe Myrtle. She has three of them around her house. This one was the brightest in color and also attracted the most bees. It stayed in bloom a lot longer than the others. I think it is due to the partial afternoon shade it has. With summer almost at an end the little monster and I agreed to help her trim up the spent blooms this fall. Hopefully next year they will be just as pretty for her to enjoy.
