What to Know About the Plant

The Catawba Crepe Myrtle is a deciduous plant with luscious green leaves that turn a fiery orange-red in the fall, providing a stunning display of seasonal color. This tree can reach heights of 15-25 feet, boasting a spreading canopy that creates a graceful silhouette in your garden. Its smooth, peeling bark adds an interesting texture to the landscape, making it a captivating focal point.

Enhancing your Fruitscape

Integrate the Catawba Crepe Myrtle into your fruitscape for a harmonious blend of edibles and ornamentals. Pair this ornamental plant with fruit trees like Apple, Cherry, and Plum, which complement its colorful blooms with their own seasonal fruit offerings. Berry plants such as Blackberries and Raspberries can provide a contrast in texture and taste, enhancing the visual appeal of your garden. Tropical plants like Pineapple Guava and Kiwi add a touch of exotic flair, while herbs such as Mint and Basil contribute aromatic foliage and culinary versatility. By combining these elements, you can create a diverse and dynamic landscape that delights all the senses.

Growing Guide

Currently, we only have growing guides for our edible plants.   We are working on them for our ornamental & landscaping plants, and will add them in the near future.  Contact us if you have questions on how to plant and nurture your Crepe Myrtle Trees, and we will be glad to have one of our gardeners assist you.

Ornamental & Landscaping Plants at Just Fruits & Exotics

Although Just Fruits and Exotics has been providing ornamental and landscaping plants to customers at our nursery since we added “Exotics” to our name in the 1990’s, we never had them available to our customers online.

However, September of 2018, with the launch of our updated Just Fruits and Exotics website, we added many of our ornamental and landscaping plants to our online store for our customers nationwide.   We encourage you to “Fruitscape” your yards, mixing edibles and ornamentals to make your own edible garden.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
