Description

Radiant Red Crape Myrtle – Lagerstroemia Plant

Lagerstroemia, the crape myrtle (also crepe myrtlecrêpe myrtle, or crepeflower) is a species of flowering plant in the genus Lagerstroemia of the family Lythraceae. It is native to the Indian Subcontinent (hence the species epithet indica), and also to Southeast Asia, China, Korea and Japan. The genus name honours Swedish botanist Magnus von Lagerstroemia. It is an often multi-stemmed, deciduous tree with a wide-spreading, flat-topped, rounded, or even spike-shaped open habit. The tree is a popular nesting shrub for songbirds and wrens.

The crepe myrtle is a favourite of many southern gardeners. (Crepe myrtle is the preferred common name in the south). The draw for this plant is that is blooms at a time when most trees are not blooming. If the plant is healthy, it will be covered with blooms that will last for months during the hottest part of the summer.

Attributes

  • Colourful foliage early Spring through Fall.
  • Beautiful blooms late Spring through Fall.
  • Drought is tolerant.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Highly resistant to mildew.
  • Great for smaller gardens.
    • Planting: Choose a location with full sun exposure and well-draining soil. Dig a hole twice as wide and as deep as the root ball. Place the plant in the hole, backfill with soil, and water thoroughly.
    • Watering: Water newly planted crape myrtles regularly to establish roots. Once established, water deeply once a week during dry spells. Avoid overwatering, as crape myrtles prefer slightly dry conditions.
    • Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring to remove dead, damaged, or crossing branches. To promote flowering, selectively prune branches to encourage an open and airy growth habit. Avoid heavy pruning, as it can reduce flowering.
    • Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring, following the package instructions. Avoid excessive nitrogen fertilizers, as they can promote foliage growth at the expense of flowers.
    • Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the trunk to prevent rot.
