Lagerstroemia indica - Biloxi

Family: Lythraceae.

Landscape value: A tough, small tree that offers attractive bark, masses of pale pink flowers in summer and good yellow-orange autumn colours. Suitable for small gardens and amenity areas or can be a very effective street tree.

Height: 7 metre(s)

Width: 5 metre(s)

Growth rate: Slow to moderate.

Habit: Open, vase shaped. Forms a neat outline as it matures.

Foliage: Leathery green leaves, turning yellow to reddish-orange in autumn.

Flowers: Masses of pale pink flowers in large, terminal panicles for an extended period from mid-summer to early autumn.

Fruit: Insignificant brown capsules.

Bark: Beige outer bark, exfoliating (after about three years) to reveal a cinnamon coloured underbark.

Tolerances: Adaptable to a range of conditions, heat and some dryness but requires adequate moisture during establishment. Bred for resistance to powdery mildew.

Comments: Best in moist, well drained, slightly acidic soils in a position receiving full sun. Transplants easily provided adequate moisture levels are maintained. Bare rooted Indian Summer® Lagerstroemia should be pruned back by 30% when planted – this will help promote spring growth by allowing the plant to first establish a strong root system.
