The dark green leaves provide a perfect backdrop for the blooms and a beautiful contrast to the brighter greens of your garden. 

The blooms of a crape myrtle are a magnificent display that attract flocks of hummingbirds and butterflies through the summer months. These white crape myrtles produce 4 to 6” clusters of white flowers that can last for many weeks or even months. The leaves of crape myrtles are a unique glossy dark mocha/green. compared to other crape myrtles the 'Like a Latte' is slower growing, but can reach 2 to 3 feet if not pruned. Like a Latte' keeps a shrub like form, which makes it perfect for a shrub border, a backdrop in front of a fence, lining a drive, or planting on the corner of a house.
