Crepe Myrtle 'Sacramento'

I was almost, if not more, thrilled to see the new spring foliage of my miniature Crepe Myrtle 'Sacramento' as I was to see the spring flowers.  I had started to think that it hadn't survived our record making late winter freeze.  When if finally started to show signs of life, I was exceedingly happy!  The foliage in the spring is quite beautiful with rusts and chartreuse colorings.  When it starts to bloom however, watch out!  It blooms non-stop through out the season.  As the fall approaches, it turns beautiful russet colors.  Through the winter you can see the pleasing architecture of the branches.  It has something to offer all four seasons.
