Well I ordered this one but got "Blush" Crape Myrtle which is white with a hint of pink. Funny the first Crape Myrtle I bought from another company I ordered Red Rocket and they sent me a beautiful white (Natchez?) so anyway, it's black/purple leaves and light pink flowers fit in nice enough! And I have reviewed the 'Red Rocket' Crape Myrtle which I bought recently from Perfect Plants. NICE.
