“CRAPE MURDER”!

“CRAPE MURDER”: It’s what we do with those flowering trees during their dormant season that has landscape experts baffled and East Texans re-thinking their late winter “to do” list.

East Texas is known for its beautiful landscape. Just like our loblolly pines stand out in the winter, our vibrant crape myrtles are the star of summer.
