Zuni Crape Myrtle (full grown) - got pics?

Hi! Does anyone have any pics of their full grown Zuni Crape Myrtle. Most websites don't show fully grown Zuni's....just pics of perfect blooms, etc. I would appreciate some pics from real people. :-) I bought one and planted it just days before all the flooding. We were lucky...didn't have flooding, just tons of rain. My Zuni is about 5 ft right now.

Thanks, clairtx. Actually, I've been to that site already. Like I said, most websites don't really show anything of value other than picture perfect blooms. I was hoping for pics from real people. But, I do appreciate your info. :-)

Did you ever find any photos of the Zuni as an established tree, texasgardener? I've been growing a small plant in a pot for awhile and it should get into the ground this fall and I've been wondering what they look like in the Texas landscape. It's grown okay, but not made a single flower, also have to hope the label is right and it's actually a Zuni.

I planted one in my old neighborhood about 8 years ago, I will snap a picture of it tomorrow and post.

Are you still interested in seeing some pics of "Zuni"? I've got a couple I planted several year ago. Want to see those pics? I picked Zuni because the color of the bloom matched my Texas Sage.

Yes, please, xtal - so many of the google images seem to be closeups from commercial sites and many of the landscape pictures are from Southeastern gardeners like Helen Yoest & Steve Bender. They're are wonderful gardeners & garden writers but they're in states very different from Central Texas.

It would be especially helpful if you can show the bark & what the branching looks like. Right now the few leaves on my little Zuni are displaying some autumn color - that's a definite plus for November, even though there hasn't been a single blossom!
