Highland Farm has Crape Myrtle!

By Highland Farm Inc. | Jun 14, 2013

Highland Farm has recently been able to obtain two cultivars of Crape Myrtle (lagerstroemia indica), which have been proven to thrive on Block Island! 

"Rhapsody in Pink" sports deep burgandy leaves that,with age (same season), turn to green. Medium pink clusters of dainty flowers appear from June to first frost.

"Muskogee" claims green foliage, with purplish-pink clusters, and attractive fall bark.

Both cultivars will reach 10-15 feet tall, and 10 feet wide (but are very prune-able), and require full sun (6-8 hours).  Call the Farm today at 792-8188 for pricing and availability, and as always, FREE delivery to the Ferry!
