Lagerstroemia indica x fauriei
A stunning deciduous tree with small oval shaped green leaves which turn a stunning reddish/orange in autumn. A beautiful display of vibrant, hot pink, crinkled flowers appear in late summer. Winter pruning is encouraged as flowers form on the new growth. The bark peels off to reveal a smooth trunk that is beige in colour with red-brown streaks.
A fantastic feature tree both in autumn, spring and summer.
Prefers well-drained humus-rich soil in a full sun position.
