The Crape Myrtle Cottage Garden palette is designed to include a selection of plants that add bright colors and traditional planting character to landscapes and gardens throughout the Inland Empire. Since there are numerous crape myrtle flower colors to choose from, this palette can be adapted to many garden and patio situations.
A wide range of companion plants can be selected to grow with crape myrtles. This palette of plants has been selected to show a range of shapes, colors and textures that are possible. At the same time, emphasis is placed upon gardens and plantings where the traditional lawn is absent; understory areas are covered with organic mulch, gravel or decomposed granite in place of higher water needy lawns.
