Description

Pink Crape Myrtle - Plants

Lagerstroemia, also known as Pink Crape Myrtle , is a flowering tree or shrub native to Asia and Australia. It is a popular landscaping plant due to its long-lasting, vibrant flowers and attractive bark. Pink Crape Myrtle  is a cultivar of Lagerstroemia that is known for its deep pink, white, red flowers and black bark, which gives it its unique name.

In addition to its ornamental value, the Crape Myrtle plant also has medicinal properties. The flowers and bark of the plant have been used traditionally to treat a range of ailments including fever, infections, and inflammation. The plant is also a popular choice for producing essential oils and perfumes. 

Features

  • Height: Typically grows up to 15-25 feet tall, but dwarf varieties are available that stay much shorter.
  • Bark: Has a smooth, grayish-brown bark that peels off in thin, paper-like sheets.
  • Leaves: Produces glossy green leaves in the spring and summer that turn reddish-bronze in the fall.
  • Flowers: Blooms in the summer with large clusters of pink, crepe-like flowers that can last for several weeks.
  • Sun and soil: Prefers full sun and well-drained soil, but can tolerate some shade and a variety of soil types.
  • Hardiness: Generally hardy in USDA zones 7-9, but some cultivars are more cold-tolerant and can be grown in zones 6 and 10 as well.
  • Plant your Pink Crape Myrtle in a location that receives full sun for at least six hours a day. It prefers well-drained soil but can tolerate a wide range of soil types.
  • Water deeply once a week during the growing season, especially during hot and dry weather. Watering deeply encourages the roots to grow deeper into the soil, making the tree more drought-tolerant.
  • Fertilize once in the spring before new growth appears with a slow-release fertilizer that is specifically formulated for flowering trees. Avoid fertilizing in late summer or fall, as this can encourage new growth that won't have time to harden off before winter.
  • Prune in the late winter or early spring before new growth appears. Remove any dead or damaged branches, as well as any crossing or rubbing branches. Prune to shape the tree or to maintain a desired size. Avoid over-pruning, as this can reduce flowering.
  • Apply a 2-3 inch layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to help retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.
