Crape Myrtle, Glebe Harbor

The crapemyrtle or crepe myrtle is a "Lagerstroemia" and grows beautifully in coastal Virginia. (It doesn't do well in the mountains though, plus the one we planted up here seems to appeal to hungry deer.)

On Egret Court, where I took this picture, the climate is warm enough for this colorful flowering tree.
