CRAPE MYRTLES - MEMBERSHIP - FALL SCHEDULE

Crape Myrtle"The Lilac of the South"
Dynamite Crape Myrtle
Crape Myrtles are a popular choice for gardeners. They require very little maintenance and provide beautiful color in the heat of the summer. Crape Myrtles are most popular in the south, gaining the nickname the lilac of the south, but are enjoyed by gardeners across the country. Their scientific term, Lagerstroemia, was coined in 1759 in order to honor Magnus von Lagerstroem, an avid naturalist. The common name in America, Crape Myrtle, is derived from the crape-like appearance of the flower.
The Crape Myrtle was introduced to Charleston, South Carolina from China and Korea, in the late 1700's by the French botanist Andre Michaux.

What a Spectacular Spring It Has Been
After what seemed months of cold, wet, snowy weather spring arrived. And what a spring we had. The poppies were amazing. The irises - gorgeous. And the roses fantastic.
Pink Double Ruffle Poppies - Iris - Roses
Many Clark Garden visitors have been impressed with the Peggy Martin Rose growing along the arbor at the Rose Pavilion. When we explain that those roses were planted from a one gallon container and are in their third year there is total disbelief.
Not only is the Peggy Martin beautiful, it has a great story. The rose survived Hurricane Katrina. Dr. William Welch, our featured speaker at our Spring Festival, shared the story. I hope you have a chance to take time to read Dr. Welch's article the Early History of the Peggy Martin
. The history makes the rose even more beautiful.
