Keep it?

Asked August 3, 2017, 8:44 AM EDT

This came up in my front yard. Does anyone know what it is? Bush? Tree? Invasive?

Baltimore County Maryland plant identification crapemyrtle

This is a Crapemyrtle and it is a desirable shrub to have. There are many types, some of which can grow into tree-like proportions. They are prized for their flowers, and some have beautiful peeling bark with age.
It is not invasive.
