If you have ever driven through Central France in summer and seen wonderful trees plastered with pink or red flowers, chances are they are Crepe Myrtle, or Lagerstroemia. Now you can grow this amazing wonder over here too.
Thanks to new breeding in Italy, this standard shrub is compact and free flowering in the cooler UK climate, and makes a stunning and very hardy summer patio plant for a smaller pot. This red crepe myrtle is a lovely bold neon red and will literally be smothered in tissue-like bold & bright flowers all summer, and provide a mecca for bees and butterflies.
Golden autumn leaves make the crepe myrtle a fantastic plant too for autumn interest so you can be sure of a spectacular show for most of the year! Very hardy to -15°C or more too, depsite its exotic looks – be one of the first to grow one!
Supplied as an established plant, 90cm tall including 3L pot, your crepe myrtle has been formed into a stunning standard plant with a ball of foliage on top – perfect to display on your patio, decking or a sunny balcony.
