Summer Blooms

For those of you with crape myrtles, it is a yearly anticipation that the summer heat will bring out vivid blooms in these special trees (and for those of you who don’t own crape myrtles … well, why don’t you!?).  Right now, the streets of Littleton, where Ben’s Creek Nursery is located, are decorated with striking crape myrtle blooms.

It is especially gratifying to see this display inasmuch as we donated these crape myrtles to the town of Littleton about 10 years ago. It was a total of more than 60 trees, including such high quality cultivars as Tonto, Sioux, and Acoma crapes. They came from our Nursery out Route 4 a little ways, where we had been growing and nurturing them for upwards of 4 or 5 years.

When they were planted, the crapes averaged about 5 or 6 feet tall. But baby, look at them now!

These Tontos are at their full mature height, about 10 feet tall.

The Sioux are almost double the size of the Tontos, and are showing vibrant pink blooms.

The Acomas are dwarf crapes with a large full spread and true white blooms.
