California residents will receive five free crape myrtle trees for becoming a member of the Arbor Day Foundation in January. The free trees are part of the nonprofit foundation’s Trees for America campaign.
“Crape myrtles were selected for this campaign because of their elegant color and form, making them an attractive addition to the home landscape in California,” said John Rosenow, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Small flowering trees boast perfect, six-petaled flowers of pink and red, with leaves that change from summer green to autumn red, orange and yellow.”
