    Link to a variety of crepe myrtle with white flowers. If both of the suggested genera are not a match. Please resubmit when it blooms again with flowers photo, thank you.

    First plant – It’s hard to tell with its flowers. For now I could only speculating this is either a type of crepe myrtle (Lagertroesmia) or Itea virginica (sweet spire)? Although I lean toward crepe myrtle, but without seeing its flowers I’m only guessing. Check out both of these plants flowers and if you have a match. Best wishes!

    The second plant with red flowers – Maybe a type of Canna?
