This interesting specimen tree originates form China, Korea, Japan and the Indian continent and is a welcome addition to the UK.
Its dark, glossy green leaves almost gives it an appearance of an evergreen. As autumn approaches these take on a flame red/orange colour. Lagerstroemia also have a stunning bark, mottled with grey and pink, this routinely sheds to reveal further colour.
The flowers appear at the end of a hot summer and are bright red for this cultivar, with the characteristic crimpled petals of the species.
Although Crape Myrtles are not considered to be fully hardy in some colder areas of the UK, we have seen some impressive floral dispalys at our nursery in Cambridgeshire and they seem to be faring the cold winters too. With this in mind this tree is more suited to the south of the country in a shelterd, south facing position.
Mature height: 3-7m
