Why Does My Crape Myrtles Have Two Different Color Blooms?

17 years ago

The last few years my Crape Myrtle tree has had white blooms. This year it has some white blooms and some light pink blooms.

I've never really liked the white blooms so I'm happy to see the pink ones. But I'm curious as to how this happened. Can the color of Crape Myrtle blooms be changed by different chemicals, fertilizers, or other additives (as in Hydrangeas)?

By the way, I LOVE the purple Crape Myrtles I occasionally see in other people's lawns around town. Does anyone know the names of any of the purple types of Crape Myrtles?

Thanks . . . and happy gardening!
