Crapemyrtle (Lagerstroemia Indica) 30 seeds (#178)

Crapemyrtle is a heat-loving, summer flowering shrub to small tree that originates from China. It is best known for its large clusters of brightly colored blooms that appear at its branch tips. These dazzling flowers can be in shades of white, red, purple or pink, depending on the cultivar (of which there are many). The glossy leaves of crapemyrtle emerge pale green to bronze in the spring, turn dark to medium green in the summer, then transition to bronze, yellow, orange or red in the fall. Mature plants may adopt a beautiful vase-shape and often have attractive smooth or exfoliating bark, so they add winter interest to the garden.
Crapemyrtle is tolerant of a wide range of well drained soils and grows best in hot sunny locations. Foliar powdery mildew can be a problem and resistant varieties are available. This great small tree works well for foundation plantings or as a specimen plant in mixed borders. (source: learn2grow.com)
