Wordless Wednesday: 8/20/2014 There is more to Crape Myrtle than just flowers

You’re so right. Beautiful bark.
‘Osage” is the only one of about seven different crape myrtles in my garden that shed bark to this wonderful color. Apparently, not many of them do, but if one shops at the right time of year, they can be found.
By a mild fluke, our landscapers installed a variety that also has beautiful bark. Don’t know if it is Osage though it looks similar.
