    A client has this tree in his yard and really likes it and wants to know the name. I have never seen anything like it... It has white flowers similar to a hydrangea but leaves that are smaller and more round. The trunk is an extremely smooth surface and almost looks like it is stained. Anyone know what this could be? Sorry i dont know how to rotate the pic

    I was going to sat the same thing. But then I said no damn way it's that common of a tree and a landscaper has no idea. I looked at the picture and I would say Crepe myrtle............very slowly and apprehensively.

    Yes I think it is a crepe myrtle, just with some unusual bark color. Thanks
