Sorry to have to tap your expertise again, but I am getting requests to ID this plant.

It wasn't labelled at the Arboretum, and the office was closed, so I turn to you for help.

What is this?



Tks

1. Was it a shrub or small tree?

If so it may be a crepe myrtle.

14. I'm glad I could help.

Goodness knows I owe more plant IDs than I'll ever be able to repay.

7. I would have said Rose of Sharon myself

 

Crepe Myrtle seed pods are much more clustered

12. I looked for a summer photo of that bush, but I couldn't find it.
