Product details

This selection of the Crape is best grown in south facing and sheltered locations.

Native of both Korea and China it was introduced into the UK in 1759 and won the Award of Garden Merit in both 1924 and 2002.

A beautiful small tree with a rounded somewhat flat-topped growth.

The bark is most attractive being mottled with grey and pink while the small dark green leaves turn flame red in autumn.

The deep rose pink flowers with their crimped petals are borne late summer but are only initiated after warm summers.

Much has been made of climate change over the last decade and I find it interesting that we have routinely been able to get our Lagerstroemia to flower in recent years.

When I first started growing trees in the late 1980s this tree was treated as half hardy and flowers were not even considered!

We stock these as both standard trees and multi-stemmed

Mature height: 3-7m

Mature spread: 4-5m
