I love the bark and shape of the Crape Myrtle tree trunk. It is not native to Texas, but it thrives and is so widely grown here that it appears on all the lists of preferred Texas trees. It can be grown as a shrub or a small tree (although some of them here in Austin are extremely large, towering over houses). The bloom period is long and colorful.
